Excellent "blog" by Kurt Smith at thatsracin.com.  In his comments further down, he makes the most telling statement:

"Given the choice between integrity and "excitement", NASCAR will choose excitement every single time." 

Ain't that the truth?   Angry

Please check out an excellent commentary:

Yep. Very well stated, but begs the question:

I love his comments at the end about NASCAR's jealousy toward the NFL.

Be careful what you wish for, guys! Evil

i think the last time you could use the word integrity and nascar in the same sentence was the last day bill france sr was in charge. not that he was the most honest of the bunch, but we watched racing then, not infomercials

That was my thought too, Ken.  He, at least, loved racing...not just the money.
