Where Have the NASCAR Critics Gone?
Mike Harper - SOZ

Statement about the future of the Thunder Crew Radio Show is at the bottom of this column… If you’ve followed NASCAR over the past five years you know without a doubt the times have changed. As I mentioned in ‘Did NASCAR Push Carl Edwards Away?’ the industry will continue to get smaller.  It’s not all bad and it’s not all NASCAR’s fault.  For example, the Internet and economic challenges from several years ago killed print media.  This caused the job...

Did NASCAR Push Carl Edwards Away?
Mike Harper - SOZ

The Carl Edwards situation should be a wake-up call for the sport.  We’ve all been hearing from some of the sport’s top drivers including Carl’s former teammates that everyone is surprised by his decision.   This reaction from insiders has me asking a very simple question, did NASCAR push Carl Edwards out of the sport with their decision to partner with Monster Energy?

Yes, we’ve heard this song and dance before, but with the announcement last month of a new series sponsor my hope was this format change would be something significant…that would bring a competitive intensity back to the sport once again.

NASCAR has Trust Issue with Fans
Dennis Michelsen

NASCAR has Trust Issue with Fans The most frightening words for years to people were “I am from the government and I am here to help you.” For us NASCAR fans you could substitute “NASCAR Executives” for “Government” and understand why this announcement from NASCAR last night is meeting with some resistance from us old school fans. Tradition means a lot to us old school fans which is why we rise for the prayer and National Anthem. NASCAR fans have...
