NASACAR races this weekend.

Nextel: Out of 72 possible Car/Driver combinations why are there only 50 entries for the 43 spots? So what does that leave 13 to compete for 7 starting positions?

Busch: Out of 145 possible Car/Driver combinations why are only 45 registered for 43 spots? At least 19 or more registered are Cup, Truck, or Over The Hill Drivers. So much for the Busch Series without the BushWhackers it looks as if they would be hard pressed to have a full field.

Craftsman: Out of 86 possible driver/teams only 38 are registered for 36 spots? Several are Cup/Busch/Over The Hill drivers. It is same situation as Busch.

And I cannot help but including the IRL even though I cannot seem to find out who is registered for the May 30th race at Richmond International.

IRL: They have 33 listed teams/drivers entrants, only 19 showed up to for the Iowa Corn Indy Race and they were all driving the same cars, Dallara Chassis with Honda engines. Looks like a good venue for those interested in Equal Car Racing.

What are you talking about?

72 possible car/driver combinations? Where is this coming from? There are about 50 teams trying to run every race while the rest go to the 'big money' races. NH isn't one of those races. Also sponsors want to be on cars that are the bigger races, again, NH isn't considered one of those races.

It is all there except for the IRL on NASCAR.Com. I will admit there is a small perecntage of the Driver/Team combos that over lap.

So I guess you are admitting Sponsors like NASCAR control who races where.

Ofcourse. No money, no race. NASCAR is too expensive of a sport to do on your own. How many teams run a full season without sponsorship? I can't think of one.

Enough said as we sit back and watch one potential competitor after another go away till a point is reached where there are only a few competiors left. Says a lot for the sport dosen't it.

Why have you made four or five topics that are basically you complaining about NASCAR. If you don't like it don't watch it and leave it at that.
What he said!! :congrats: :thumbup:

Bingo, we are not the NASCAR complaint department we can't change NASCAR for you, so if you don't like whatcha see, than use that magic machine called the remote control and change the channel. And do me a favor by taking a long walk off a short pier.

It seems that if you want to start your own team, you have to have a big time sponsor of course, but it seems the only way to do it these days is to merge ith another team and bring in millions. whats gonna happen in 30 years or so? Is is still gonna be Hendrick, Gibbs, RCR, etc.?

this one is addressed to: 1Bob29, KK3869, and BillFan9, where is it for you to say who can post what? is this not a forum to post our thoughts, our complaints and our points of view? it has been stated before that if you dont like or dont agree with what a person says then ignore it. we get new members in here and then they see yall telling people to not express their opinion and to leave the site for doing it. if you have a counter point of view then state it, but you have NO right to tell anybody to leave the site. if you dont like how things are done here and that everyone has their right of freedom of speech then maybe it is you that needs to leave.

and just like back when gordo posted once a day what he found, if you dont like what he posts then ignore it. yea he should have combined his posts or something but it is still his right to post about his feelings on a subject. if you dont have a view that differs from his then ignore it. if you do then state it. if need be we can make a topic in the The Infield.

i have talked with other mods/admins and enough is enough. yall dont own or run the boards, so until you do leave it alone or take the above advice.

:slow:I'M IN 100% AGREEMENT HERE! :slow:

IF MIKE WANT'S TO COMPLAIN ABOUT GENERIC OR COT THEN THIS IS A GOOD PLACE. NOT THAT IT DOES MUCH GOOD BUT IT IS A PLACE TO VOICE HIS OPINION. I THINK THAT IT WOULD BE A LOT MORE PRODUCTIVE IF NASCAR WAS TO HEAR THESE COMPLAINTS. IT IS PROBABLY FELT BY MANY MORE FANS AND SHOULD BE HEARD. IT SEEMS LIKE MIKE'S TOPICS GET QUITE ABIT OF RESPONSES SO IT MUST BE OF SOMEONES INTREST. IF YOUR NOT INTRESTED IN THE POST MOVE ON. THAT WOULD BE A LOT MORE SIMPLE THAN TELLING SOMEONE TO LEAVE. YOU HAVE NO RIGHT TO SAY WHAT SOMEONE CAN OR CAN'T POST. THAT IS THE MODERATORS AND ADMINASTRATORS JOB. NOT ANY OF YOURS. :dingy:

So let me get this straight I can't say it, but you can.

Listen my friend, freedom of speech can range in everything, whether its paragraphs of beating a dead horse or telling someone to take a hike. So like it or not we have our rights too, we're always not going to be always happy or kind to what people have to say. So if I find someone to be dumb or annoying I'm going to say it. If I don't have anything I don't want to say, I won't. Simple as that.

exactly i can. there is a fine line in between where yall went with it. you didnt give your counter opinion to differ from his opinion, you went at him. as far as you leaving, you do what you want to do. i didnt tell you to leave, all i said is that if "yall" dont like it then leave. if you took it as i was aiming it at you, then we can go that route too. as of now this is done
