What's the difference between the death of Dale and the retirement of "The King"?
Not much, they were both phenomonal drivers, so don't get me wrong, drivers in nascar, past and present have got major skillz.
But when it comes down to it, what is so competitive about it any more? You can't find any other sport other than NHRA drag racing that has such
strict regulations on the cars, engines, and competition. NHRA at least can still run different motor combinations, but nascar is forced to run the
same engine, in the same car.
Take the stickers from one car and move them to another, what do you have?
The same car. How competitive is that? I want to see cars that look like cars again. Strip it down from a production model, put a cage in it, and off
you go!! I'm building a dirt track car from an 88 honda civic. I'm swapping in an integra motor, and I'm gonna put a cage in it. Why? because it is
racing, it looks like a honda, it's a honda engine, and I'm gonna be racing against toyotas, mazda's, etc. That's the difference.
Gee, I wonder what nascar will do next, go the other way?:bnghd:
