I like this guys list, but I of course would add that they need to take the first pit stall from the chasers... if Rick Hendrick does to Tony Stewart what he has apparently done to Jimmie Johnson.. I am going to hate him even worse... which is not possible..

10 dumb things.....let me see
1. All the commercials while crashes and pit stops are going on

2. Jimmy Spenser(I am still angry about his sexist remarks about how women need to take their husbands name and drop their own)

3.The lousey fire/rescue crews at Pocono

4.The fact that Pocono has just 2 jet dryers for the huge track

5.Its stoopid for California to have 2 races while they can't fill all the seats at that spdwy

6.The HUGE ticket prices are beyond stoopid

7.Rusty Wallace

8.Where do they find some of those horrible singers for the anthem?

9. Dover needs to add more pit stalls. The fact that a NASCAR track does not have enough pit stalls for 43 drivers is ABSURD

10. Do something about all the stoopid drunks at Dega who throw things onto the track

1. wannabe drivers
2. wannabe fans that get pics made with drivers
3. people that go to the infield
4. people that tailgate
5. people that get drunk at the race
6. men urinating outside at a race
7. people throwing up in public at a race
8. people screaming and yelling at races

10. Jimmie in the number 1 pit stall(thats for you Deb :))
9. Joey driving the 20 car
8. Rookies racing in sprint with out a full season of Nationwide or equal series (truck, what ever)
7. Drivers under 21
6. lack of sponsers for long time teams PETTY's
5. Editing the radio conversations I PAY FOR!
4. ESPN
3. Sean is about 4 races to long
2. Changes in teams for the season announced to early in the year!
1. Cheating team members allowed to come back after 6 races each offense even if in a different season the suspension should double what it was the last time! They should also have to pay the sponser 150,000 each race they miss.

10. The chase (Get RID of it)!!!!!

9. Roush!!!!!

8. NASCAR screwing specific drivers again, & again, & AGAIN (Robby Gordon, Johnny Sauter, etc.)!

7. NASCAR changing the rules in the middle of the season.

6. "Poco-Oh No" (NASCAR should BAN that track from ANY race).

5. Ticket prices.

4. FOX!!!!!

3. NASCAR trying to be IROC, knowing it got canned.

2. NASCAR's misconception of the rules (When does the restart official begin & the yellow line rule for example).

1. NASCAR's best national Series being the one they focus on the least (Trucks).

1. Hand slaps for cheating rather than real punishments like sitting the car and driver out for a couple of races.

2. The Chase

3. Teams having to merge in order to stay afloat.

4. Places like Fontana, New Hampshire and Michigan having two races a season.

5. The COT, bring back real cars and not IROC.

6. ESPN and TNT's race coverage. It sucks.

7. A points system that only a PHd in math can figure out. Keep it simple and then you can dump the Chase.

8. A bunch of stupid rules that no one can handle and then changing those rules whenever France or Helton is on the rag.

9. Media not paying enough attention to Nascar, especially the Truck series that has the best racing, by far.

10. The idiots that run Nascar with their "Take the money and run" attitude. The way Nascar is run now, Mojo could break out of the zoo and run the sport.
