Nascar hasn't good since Richard Petty retired.

At some point NASCAR made so many changes the fans were turned off and stayed home. I'm afraid College Football may be headed down that same path and turning off fans.

Although, it does appear attendance has improved for NASCAR in 2022, but still nothing like the 10 year run from the late 90's to about 2008. Only time will tell if it maintains.

I have been back on nascar for a couple of years now and seem to enjoy it more now than I did before. If you have not watched lately the car and rules have been changed and has made for some great racing. Also took out all the one and done type teams but still making it more affordable for all the teams. Got some new tracks and currently rehabbing N Wilksboro as well but not sure if the big boys will be running on it. Technology in these cars and race teams are sick. To each their own and the changes like any changes were tough to swallow for a while but if you have not seen a race lately tune in for a couple it may surprise you. Head down to Darlington if you are a race fan you won’t be disappointed.

Used to love going to Darlington. Haven’t been in years. Probably didn’t miss a race between 1985 and 1990 (2 races each year then) and again from about 1997-2004. We were in the infield in the early years. Was there when Bill Elliott won the first Winston million. Scaffolding 3-4 sections high when they allowed that. Took some getting used to when they flipped the track but did enjoy sitting in the turn 4 grandstands. Messed things up for me when they moved the fall race away from Labor Day. The last race I went to was the one year they were part of the chase I think was the next to last race in November. Nearly froze. Then they moved it to Mother’s Day weekend and we quit going.

I believe it will be the first race for the playoffs this year. Knowing how tough that track is their will be some teams get knocked out fairly quick.

I haven’t followed close enough lately to even know the playoff format any more. Maybe I’ll watch a little more in the next couple of months before football.

Some rivalries are being created especially when it involves Ross Chastain and Denny Hamlin. Been fun to watch and Trackhouse racing has been unbelievable as a first year team.

Was a die hard Earnhardt fan then pulled for Jr and now on the Elliot bandwagon.

Next race at Darlington is Sept 4th and may conflict with plans for the Clemson opener.

Yep. That’s why we haven’t been to a race there since we moved back to SC a few years ago. Generally conflicts with the season opener.

I had the same thought as you! When you take what originally interested fans out of the process--personal interest in your school and its natural rivalries, and in the case of NASCAR, your favorite NASCAR crew--interest begins to wane. If we wanted to support pro teams, those teams would be our primary interest to begin with, instead of college football.
