So that's why we see some teams jumping from Nationwide to Cup or leaving Nationwide altogether. Why not pay a little more to run Cup and get a lot more purse money?

---One story that for some odd reason stayed silent for all of Speedweeks in the Nationwide Series garage was an offseason move by NASCAR that increased entry fees for NNS competitors by some 25% over 2011. Over the course of a 33-race schedule, that’s going to translate to almost $10,000 in additional costs for NNS teams even before they take to the race track. “Everything NASCAR’s doing…there’s no sponsors, teams are falling out, and then they raise the f***ing price on entry fees and for people to get in and everything else. What are they thinking?” exclaimed one driver when asked about the change. “It infuriates me. It infuriates a lot of people. [But] as long as they’ve [NASCAR] got Hendrick, Roush, Childress, they’ll keep doing it.” Here’s to 2012, ladies and gents.

They're Killing the Nationwide Series! First they switch bodies completely to the Nationwide COT that killed off a bunch of teams and now they raise money for entry fees. NASCAR is killing their lower tiers of main stage racing. I mean when you have past champions in the field that can't find sponsorships that's a problem. They're forcing team that work on a shoe string budget and actually race to pony up more money instead of being able to improve themselves. That's a shame...
