not until they stop catering to Hendrick, JJ & Knaus. that has tuned out a largest number of fans. when the cheating #48 flies around the track but his teammates do not have a good car. what are the fans supposed to think. no he is not the best driver , we all know (ha) that he can not drive whenever he is in traffic. proven over & over. it is the cheating grey area that Nascar lets them get away with. stop them , like last year and fans will return. but too late this year. it is over for all of us. let angie H , his friends,& family support him.

Exactly. The economy has nothing to do with people not watching for free on TV. The A$$CAR parades are like watching paint dry.

".....up to a million fewer people watching, and despite signing a fat contract with FOX, NASCAR should be worried-they haven’t re-upped with either TNT or ESPN for an extension, nor have they signed anything with a different network…and the more the numbers freefall, the more the value of a contract stagnates."

ESPN is planning on replacing it's NASCAR coverage with Synchronised Swimming reruns.

Quick, somebody call the Wambulance for this guy. JJ and the 48 Team is sure making it look easy, huh? If you are correct in your notion (ha) then Jimmie should win @ Phoenix and coast while everybody gets out of his way @ Homestead. Tell that to Keslowski who out qualified him and was faster than him in practice which he normally does terrible @ Phoenix and has never won there. And, at Homestead where BK dominates. Truth is everybody thinks Jimmie is this our that but the fact of the matter is he's just a driver that is going for his 6th championship and people are bitter they can't do anything about it. 1-800- WAMBULANCE

NASCAR needs to get their head out of the sand and treat all cars on the same level playing field. Favouritism for the #48 car is driving the race fans away.

This has ZERO to do with the #48 team or who wins anything anymore, it has to do with a terrible product that could put a person to sleep after drinking three cans of Redbull! A$$CAR is a joke, plain and simple.
