    Every time they come up with another scheme to feed their greed they end up losing viewers and attendees. Wish they would go back to Bill Sr's rules!

    Yep. The broadcast announcers were discussing that on Sunday. They likened it to the grooming of baseball field and horse racing tracks. I think racing was just fine before the application of the sticky stuff, maybe NASCAR needs to look at the tires, cars and track designs if they want more side-by-side racing.

    Back in the 60's - 70's before all the pointless rules a car might win by several laps, being close together was not required. A fast car trying to pass a slower car who did not want to be passed gave us the excitement. But of course what really opened the gates was the fist fight in 79, so some fisticuffs without penalties may be their answer.

    If they want side by side racing, then spray the high groove up to the wall....add some grip to the marbles areas...

    Having finally returned from a wet couple of months of European bike racing I do enjoy NASCAR 'comedy'.

    The IOM was a disappointment weather wise, two weeks of rain delayed practice and testing, contributing to three race deaths.
    However, the racing was epic as usual.
    The riders who raced were not just the ones who were courageous, Guy Martin withdrew from the Senior as he decided 5 laps on an unfamiliar superbike was courting disaster.
    It takes a big set to say that publicly, especially as he managed to take P2 in the Zero category, and that with 100+MPH average speeds!
    We followed up with a wet Dutch MotoGP at Assen, again with great racing and 'just because we could' rode to the Sachsenring for a damp German MotoGP.
    Nary a sign of adding a sticky surface at all events!
