Michael, I grew up going to Riverside International Raceway and love the road course's can we make just a little more room? This was long before NASCAR was televised regularly so road raceing was all I knew. just a personal plea knowing that the powers that be will never let it happen........But how cool would a cup race at Brutons Nurburgring idea be?? 13 miles of awsome road course high speed straights and lot's of places to pass.

Hap Sharp rules.

Most say he cheated with the vaccum cleaner/wing.

It's become just the opposite for me. I used to enjoy NASCAR, but the last few years, focusing more just on Robby, I don't pay as much attention to the other action go on. I spend my time during the race watching and viewing chat, constantly looking at the scroll to see how far behind he is, is he close to going a lap down, will there be a caution before he goes a lap down, how many laps down he is, is he in the lucky dog, how far behind the lucky dog, why isn't he on the track, what is the issue? There is hardly any time to watch the rest of the action. I've actually enjoyed the overall races more the last couple of weeks because I can just sit there and watch the race. Don't get me wrong, I wish Robby was running. But it's more work trying to keep up when he is. That said, I'll be glad to do it.

Bruton Smith just said on Sirius radio that they will be putting the track back the way it was.

The way it was ..................Does that mean blacktop?????????? I don'y think they are going to do anything but.............hey it's almost Wednesday that means a new topic......... grrrrrreeeaaattt !!!

An article said he is listening to the feedback of the fans.

Oh and before I crash and I'm sure I'll repeat this..............concerns with sponsorship seem to effected by the economy which could have something do with jobs available so make a statement and buy only Candy made in the U.S.A. (or canada for our fans across the border) to put in those baskets a magical Rabbit delivers in a couple few weeks. Baby steps like boycotting jelly beans from Brazil (hope the racing gets better /Political sidestep/) and other such sweets..............Leave thumper a can of Speed even.

"Baby steps like boycotting jelly beans from Brazil" Sorry, but Brasil is one of my favorite places to go and I won't be boycotting anything from there. Here's one of the reasons why -

WOW hot chicks !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! is that where they are all hiding. Mayfair "made in Brazil" Jellybeans blow. They are not worth giving to any kid. Only one example. Out of respect to the planet I now turn my filter on. Here's why some bimbos in Brazil lose in the competition. Just a small sample off the tip of my head mind you.


The attendance for the spring race has gone down from...
2009 160k
2010 138k
2011 120k
2012 102k
If I want to watch California I would go to California. As a track owner I don't like the direction of those figures. I'm sure they are doing surveys and figuring out how many people are coming back and why they don't want to come back. Bristol is no longer an event and lacks excitement. Even if they change the tire package, the cars won't get near each other.
