NASCAR is the number one motorsport in America. And it's my favorite sport of all time. I hate the NFL, couldn't care less about it. MLB is boring, Golf puts me to sleep. Only Basketball is somewhat fun to watch in comparison to NASCAR in my opinion. (Excluding other racing series). But be that as it may, NASCAR has a lot of problems it really needs to address soon. Just to start off, the Nationwide series should be a series for Nationwide drivers only! It's the AA version of NASCAR, the college football if you will. You don't see the Dallas Cowboys go to the college ranks to play games and take chances from other up and coming players do you? No you do not. But in NASCAR that's not the case. Drivers like Kyle Busch and Carl Edwards will regularly race in and win in the Nationwide series, taking chances away from other up and coming drivers to prove themselves and get up to the Cup series themselves.
Other fans say that it's good that the drivers get a chance to prove themselves, and that racing against the Cup drivers is a good thing. That's a bunch of bull crap. You as a Nationwide driver shouldn't have to do anything with the Cup guys until you can prove you're good enough to graduate from the Nationwide series to the Cup. And these Cup drivers have no business racing against the lesser rookies who can't compete with them. People talking about how great Kyle Busch is for how many wins he has in the top 3 series, and how it compares to Richard Petty's 200 CUP wins are absolute idiots.
Another major problem that NASCAR has, and they aren't helping it in any way, is mystery cautions. That's when a caution flys on the track for "debris", yet you never see it! Hmmmmm, wonder why that is NASCAR? There are folks who think NASCAR just throw random flags for whenever they want to see a restart and spice up the race, and frankly NASCAR agrees to that completely with how they never truly answer to the questions raised by such actions. You will hear of multiple cautions in each and every race, yet nothing is ever seen. That's a real problem NASCAR needs to address, because a lot of fans are sick of it and are even comparing NASCAR to the WWE. That's the ultimate insult, to be called for "faking" your sport or cautions for the race to be more exciting. If a caution legitimately comes out, then fine. But if it's a technical caution it shouldn't happen. Even different drivers are sick of it happening as much as it does.The race should run as it should, not as a fan may want it. If a fan doesn't like that the entire race was yellow free, then get over it. NASCAR is trying to help the fans get an exciting "show", and that's fine and all, but this isn't a television program. It's a race. So it should fall as it does, not according to that debris on the backstretch that isn't really a problem in the first place.
The last major thing that NASCAR really needs to work on is something I've talked about before, and that's the cars. The cars that are raced in the National Association of STOCK CAR Auto Racing should never have been not strongly at least themed on their street brother. Thankfully NASCAR is allowing a lot more room for manufacturer identity in the 2013 Cup cars. That would reverse the trend that the cars have very little in common with the street cars, which should have never been an issue in the first place frankly. Hopefully this is just the first in the many different areas in which NASCAR really needs to adjust itself.
