This is an interesting conversation.
I see both sides.
Would I like to see the cars look like street cars?
Do I want any one driver or team to have an unfair advantage.
I do like how "back in the day" Manufactures used to pursue performance in their street cars so they could put them in NASCAR, but since that is not happening anyway, then I think the cars need to stay similar to keep things fair.
Of course, that being said, this can be looked at two ways. (or more)
One way is that there is still a certain amount of domination. Look at Chevy, and particularly Hendricks.
Enough said there. Also consider the big teams in genral, Rousch, Gibbs, Everham verses the small one or two car teams.
On the other hand, overall I feel that things are more equally competitive then the may have ever been. I don't think we'll ever see another season dominated like Petty did.
Which way is better for the sport. I guess ultimately the fans will dictate by their viewership (is that a real word?).
And now, back on topic
, I am really suprsed that fines are not going to be handed out since NASCAR sems to be on a zero tolerance kick lately.
I am trying to determine if Harvick'* telling Montoya he was going to kick his a$$ was "on air" or not. If so, then I guess it would be fair to hold him to the same rule that has fined several other driver'* lately.
Personally, I hink that rule is crap, too, but it should be enforced for the sake of consistency.
