Is Shaming Fans Good for NASCAR?
Mike Harper - SOZ

Call me crazy but I thought fans were important to NASCAR. How many times in the past did we hear “without the fans we couldn’t do what we love to do” when drivers or other NASCAR personalities talked specifically about the fan base?

Donald Trump has a Plan to Make NASCAR Great Again
Dennis Michelsen

Donald Trump has a Plan to Make NASCAR Great Again Whoever came up with the idea of taking NASCAR fans back in time for the return of the Southern 500 to its rightful home deserves every award known to mankind. This was a treat for older race fans and an educational lesson to younger fans. NASCAR, NBC, Darlington Raceway and many of the teams did a fantastic job turning back the clock while honoring the heroes of our favorite sport....
