Most everything he says is SO true!  I especially like a reader's comment about how casual fans were not going to stop on the race just because Next-hell tried to make the "4 quarters" like a football game.  Personally, I liked the inversion though.

Please don't let Matt's comment about the Busch brothers (or any other driver) open this up to driving bashing.  Thank you!

No bashing from here. In fact, I thought that Kurt was pretty civil about it in his tv interview. Good for him. Smiley

Here's another good article about Saturday night's extravaganza from Vito Pugliese at frontstretch.com:

http://www.frontstretch.com/vpugliese/9059/

One point he makes reminds me of that commercial with several drivers in it (Sadler, Edwards, etc.) talking about the local tracks:

"Indeed, those were exciting times. NASCAR acted like itself and had its soul intact."

Everytime I see that commercial about the local tracks and hear the drivers say they're "the soul of NASCAR..." I always say "NA$CAR no longer has a soul..."   Angry

I agree with what Dick said when he said this:

Thanks, Matt and Vito, for two excellent columns! Smiley Smiley

Between the attempt to turn NASCAR into football, the tire compound issues, and the loss of the lawsuit to keep AT&T off the #31 car, this is not the best time to sell people on NASCAR.  It has indeed lost its way.
