Take out about the first 20 - 25 rows of seats at Talladega and Daytona (you don't fill them anyway), give em' back the spoiler and trash the restrictor plates. You might want to put the flagman a little higher also. Then you will need to add 20 - 25 rows of seating at the top. (you will fill them).

I certainly agree bring it back to days past, They will need to learn to drive the car. If you don't so be it over the wall you go. The COT can handle the 30' drop off/over the turns walls. Lets see how good todays drivers are. Could be interesting to see the moves Ewards or K Busch try.

According the tweets coming out of the Cup drivers that was at the meeting this morning with NASCAR at the tech. center in Charlotte, the wing, front splitter and a little of the restrictor plate hole is going away. The drivers said NASCAR was actually encouraging them to talk to the press and public about it. It's going to cost the teams a ton of money change the cars over but I'd bet Hendrick has a track reserved somewhere to start testing real soon if he hasn't already. Just changing back to a front valance and spoiler is going to effect virtually everything on the car, especially the suspension.
