Problem is the fans are too weak and whipped to stand up, make a point, and give them the finger for rolling over. They will just bend over and continue to support allowing themselves to slowly be painted blue.
At some point we need to either stand on strong conviction or bend to weak addiction.
Have you seen the all the empty seats at tracks this year?
Have you not noticed the decline in primary sponsorship of cars which has caused fields to be reduced from 43 to 40 entries and even then gone unfilled?
Have you not seen that from week to week the paint schemes (wraps) on cars have been changing so as to make them unrecognizable?
Do you not know that there will be no titled sponsorship for the Cup Series next year (e.g. Winston, Nextel, Sprint, Monster Energy) because corporations realize their advertising money is wasted there?
IMO, this is all largely due to the organization being run by a drunken, pill popping, third generation waste of flesh. Whether the people running NASCAR now will be able to ressurect the game after current contractual obligations are met remains to be seen
