What Happened to Richmond (or Is It NASCAR)
Dennis Michelsen

What Happened to Richmond (or Is It NASCAR) Couch Potato Corner- Richmond When I hear the NASCAR announcers talking about “Clean Air” and “Great Racing in the Pack” at a speedway I have no issue with that because in today’s NASCAR this is what we have come to expect. But when these phrases are used at a short track in NASCAR there is something seriously wrong with your aerodynamic and engine packages. It isn’t rocket science folks just a few...

Should NASCAR and Texas Motor Speedway Apologize?
Mike Harper - SOZ

Sadly a new chapter in NASCAR was opened this past weekend at Texas Motor Speedway and without the watchful eye of a fellow Texan, we may not have even heard about it. The sad reality is NASCAR and my home track Texas Motor Speedway lost a small group of fans who I’ve been told will now watch the Texas races on TV or will look for alternate vacation destinations as the sport continues to pave a new path in search...

Did Earnhardt Call NASCAR Boring?
Mike Harper - SOZ

No sport or industry focused on entertainment wants to be called boring. For NASCAR and track promoters, the biggest challenge is keeping fans entertained before and during the race. And sadly, when the race itself is struggling to entertain fans people begin to do desperate things. The announcement or rumor, depending on how it’s being reported… is Monster Energy will bring MMA fighting to NASCAR races. As Monster tries to become NASCAR’s ratings savior, this will, without a doubt spark...

Dale Jarrett Didn’t Get NASCAR’s Memo
Dennis Michelsen

Dale Jarrett Didn’t Get NASCAR’s Memo Have you ever noticed that when NASCAR makes a big change that most of the NASCAR media quickly falls in line? This year when NASCAR made the largest rule changes in the history of the sport these changes were sold to fans as “Enhancements.” Not a single article, radio report or television report from the usual cast of characters in this sport mentioned “Rule Changes” which convinced me there must be an email list...

Is NASCAR Being Trained Like a Puppy?
Dennis Michelsen

Is NASCAR Being Trained Like a Puppy? Couch Potato Corner- Phoenix Raceway This week I actually feel sorry for NASCAR. Over the weekend at Phoenix Raceway they put on two fairly interesting races and wake up this morning to zero attention in the sports world. Most of the press is going to the crazy NCAA Basketball Tournament with the scraps of attention for the racing world going to the Gator Nationals of the NHRA drag racing world. Last week the...

Is it Really What NASCAR Fans Want?
Mike Harper - SOZ

Have you noticed during the Brian France era in NASCAR when a major change in format or policy is introduced, it’s done because NASCAR said the fans asked for it or it was done for the fans? It’s the go to line for NASCAR to help persuade us on whatever their selling. Let me give you a few examples. In 2004, Brian France’s first full season as NASCAR’s top executive, the sport introduced the Chase. At the time Mike Helton...
