NASCAR Rules Take Away Shootout & 500 Wins. Championships too?

February 21st, 2011

Congratulations to Trevor Bayne for winning the Daytona 500. I’ve followed him for a couple years now and it’s nice to see him get off to such an amazing start in his Cup career racing for the iconic Woods Brothers.

Too bad NASCAR took the win away from him.

Thanks to the new rules NASCAR instituted this year to appease all the whiners amongst the fans, drivers have to pick which series they want to receive points in this year. So, since Trevor picked to receive points in the NW series, he’s not the Points leader in Cup as he should be, he has no points at all!

Combine that with the Bud Shootout winner having the win taken away from him due to another rule that has been in need of fixing, NASCAR is off to a pretty embarrassing start to the season!

NASCAR is supposed to be the “All American Sport” but now they’re going socialist and making a joke out the sport trying to appease all the whiners amongst the fans who don’t think it’s fair that the best teams in the Nationwide Series and Truck series win the Championships. Now due to the new rules to make the whiners happy, NASCAR has also taken away the win and the Championship lead that the young rookie Trevor Bayne should have now in Cup!

 NASCAR has messed up ALL THREE series and their “make it fair for the little guy rule” has already backfired and destroyed what would’ve been an amazing chance for a small team with a rookie driver! He can’t even run for Rooke of the Year! All those who whined to “make it fair for the little guy” have ruined the biggest opportunity a “little guy” has had in NASCAR history! Hope they’re all proud of themselves now! :roll:

In addition, since NASCAR STILL hasn’t made the adjustment needed to fix the yellow line rule – the need for which made  obvious YEARS ago: that the Yellow Line rule should be suspended coming out of turn #4 the last lap – they also took away the win from the guy who crossed the finish line first in the Bud Shootout!

So now NASCAR is two for two in taking away the wins of the first two big races this season! You’re off to a great start NASCAR! When will common sense prevail again in this sport?

NASCAR Needs To Adjust The Now Infamous Yellow Line Rule!

February 12th, 2011

I wrote that headline for my Fox blog 2.5 years ago. At the time, I was SURE it’d be fixed within a year, but here we are starting the THIRD season since STILL dealing with messed up finishes at our biggest races! And it’s all due to the same dumb rule!

Races ending with someone other than the guy who crosses the finish line first being declared the winner makes a mockery of the sport.  The Yellow Line Rule is a necassary evil at plate tracks, but they should suspend the rule coming out of Turn #4 on the last lap so we can have a RACE to the finish line without having some yellow paint mess up a guys win, or as often happens, cause a wreck. The rule is NOT needed coming out of Turn #4 on the last lap! All it does is cause the EXACT same troubles NASCAR says they are trying to avoid with the rule! It’s a very simple, common sense fix that they should have made after Dega in ’08! Make a big bold line coming out of Turn #4 that all the fans and drivers can see, and when they pass it on the last lap, everything goes and no more jokes at the finish line!

As I’m typing this, all three announcers on Speed are saying the same thing. :-O Maybe word will get around and they’ll FINALLY make this long overdue change! (Y)
