I have only watched a few races in the last couple of years, I used to watch the Daytona 500 religiously but I have re introduced myself to dirt track racing.

In NA$CAR they have fallen into that dreaded "Follow the leader" crap, where I want to spend my dollars is at a local (although local to me is 3 hr one way........I'm one of the track photogs there........) dirt track, a place where they make their own lane instead of sticking to 1 maybe 1 1/2 lanes..............

Remember when drivers would get ahead and sometimes lap the field. Then came the yellow flag for debris on the track, the same sandwich wrapper that had been there for 30 laps. Just so Bill France could have competitive racing.

Much as I like NASCAR I do agree with your statement.

I like NASCAR OK, but dirt track is better. I think NASCAR should experiment with heat races like every other track in the U.S. Maybe Martinsville or Richmond. Put 15 cars out for 15-20 laps, another 15 cars for heat #2, etc. no pit stops until the A feature. Unlimited entries as long as you passed tech.
Get out there and RACE.

I think the Daytona 500 still has some sort of a modified qualifying system. But as you mentioned it should be fewer laps and strictly no pit stops.
Spending the winter in Bullhead City and will be taking in dirt tracks around the area. I think Lake Havasu City has a paved oval.
