I think I finally get it!  Nascar has instituted the new rule on keeping pit road closed for several laps after a cuation so TV can get their ads in!  Sort of their version of a "TV time out".
     Was there a pass for the lead today that we saw live instead of on replay?  Then we hear about hard racing going on, and don't see it?  And they wonder why ratings are down.  The races move west, ratings slide. Hmmm.

I said practically the same thing to Lou today about the number of laps NASCAR is wasting before opening the pits.  TV must love that so they can get more commercials in.  I guess with TV timeouts, NASCAR is getting closer and closer to their beloved football.  As usual, the big losers are the fans who get gipped out of more and more laps of racing.  

I also agreed that it seems like what few passes there are for the seem to happen when Fox is away at their many commercials.  They came back from one commercial and showed about 2 minutes of racing before they went away again.

Bristol? West? Ever been there? It's as far form the west as you can get unless you're thinking of the Wild, Wild West?

Hey Lou...my sense of direction isn't THAT bad!  The ratings were up .2% for Bristol over last year.  It's a trend in general, see...as more races move west, the ratings go...SOUTH!
