The Bloom is Off The NASCAR Rose

Since NASCAR is the only thing left until spring, we might as well try to watch. There is even a ‘chase’ to try and add some more excitement. Kind of like a ‘playoff’ for the top ten cab drivers.

 

I could not help noticing that the race in Atlanta was sparsely attended again. Why on earth are there two Cup dates at that track? It seems a little embarrassing that right in the middle of the buckle of the NASCAR belt they cannot come close to selling it out.

 

There are many tracks out there without one Cup date that could use one. Kentucky. Iowa. Pikes Peak. If I was a member of the France family, I’d add seats at a few more of those types of venues, sell them out, and yank most two-date Cup arrangements at underperforming tracks like Atlanta and Fontana. You would expand the brand and make it more accessible. Additional opportunities could also be created for Indy car.

 

 

Unfortunately common sense and motor sports management have never been adequately paired.
