It looks like there is a large group out there that does not understand the concept of ingenuity and being creative. It is their belief that if their favorite is not winning then the ones who are, are cheating.

Ingenuity and creativeness has always been a part of all sports, creating more and better competition. So why should NASCAR be any different?

As examples take in the following as starters:

Tennis: From a wooden small head racket to the large high tech synthetic compound rackets they use today. What was their governing bodies’ reaction? They accepted the new rackets and moved on. The only real variable in Tennis now is the playing surface.

Golf: Wood to high tech synthetic compound clubs, heads, and balls. Of course some of the new equipment is not allowed in many tournaments. You call that progress? From what little I know about golf it’s governing bodies are no different than NASCAR. Except that their powers that be are mired in tradition resistant to change.

Football: Compare the changes that have taken place to the past. How would you like to watch a football game where teams have to use same formations, plays, and field environments? Would that not create a more equal playing field for all teams?

I could go on and on but the bottom line is that ingenuity and being creative are responsible for creating more competition in sports not to mention the things we use in our everyday life.

Back to NASCAR, they could have changed when the auto manufactures started downsizing. They could have incorporated the changes into current stock production cars and kept real stock car racing alive. But they did not, so here we are today headed to generic racing in NASCAR with no room for ingenuity and creativeness.

I am fully aware that change is inevitable. The question is how it is addressed when it comes your way. Removing ingenuity and creativeness from anything is not good.

mike is right. change is not always good. nascar has gone to far. it started down that road years ago, and is now there.
thank goodness for baseball and football. i'm not watching a car that looks like a turtle, and appears to run like a turtle. it's really stupid looking. and if the drivers weren't kissing nascars butt, i bet they'ed all say the h#@# with the thing.

The drivers aren't going to say that!! They will drive what ever they can to make the kind of money they make! I would race volkswagon beetles at 60mph if I could bring home 2-5 million a year!! The ones that are complaining are the crew chiefs and the fans. The real fact is NASCAR is getting too blind to see that it's the fans not the sponsors that truly support the sport. Without the fans there wouldn't be the kissing butt to the sponsors and NASCAR would be trying to figure out how to attract fans not how to better suit themselves. I agree to some aspect that some changes are good some are not. The change to the COT car may not be agreeable to all of us but there are those that would rather see them out there due to the safety factor. the more competitiveness, than the older version, and the fact that the still look like cars. I am with the two of you though in the fact that I enjoyed STOCK CAR RACING. That was what I started watching and got excited about. Hopefully Nascar will see the decline before it gets too late and make some changes to be more fan friendly. Until that point my suggestion is: If you don't like it don't watch it! If you must complain about it take it too NASCAR. We can't do anything about it here or on any other forum. Most of us here are the fans and most of us are going to watch the sport we love. Liking the the generic COT car or not. I'm a race fan! Show me four wheels and 200mph and I'll watch it. IRL, NHRA, NASCAR, COT, BUSCH, Trucks, drifting, arca, four wheelers, monstor trucks, heck put the VW's out there I'll watch them too. Wouldn't mind seeing them rolling down a track. that would be intresting to see them crash. Instead of a pass in the grass we could see a pass as they crash!!!!
