Been a long time fan of Nascar, and recently watched WRC, some LeMans and american LeMans, and almost the entire 2006 F1 season.

Nascar needs to change some things. I'm one of the believers that cars should be based on their real-life counterparts eventually, and have to use certain specifications such as engine size, etc from their real cars.

If nothing else, have them meet a minimum 500 car production rule.

Competition wise, I agree with more road courses. Laguna Seca would be sweet if it is feasable... Bump drafting is only so exciting for so long. The "race for the chase" helps focus interest in the end of the season, but the points should be more structured for wins personally.

I think teams should be given more lee-way with technology, and parts. OHV engines and 5.7L are fine, but let them develop the chassis more, re-introduce other tire manufacturers, etc.

F1 is kinda doing things that are pissing me off. The one tire manufacturer will really kill competition I believe. It was always exciting to see what tires would work weekend to weekend based on track conditions, and prevailing weather etc. FIA also plainly helped ferrari out mid-season with the nose damper system ban. But that'* another topic..

I hear more and more of armchair opinions about Nascar administration. Will had some good answers so I wont regress. Governing Nascar amidst all that needs to be considered; car manufacturers, drivers, sponsors, fans, speed, Safety, competitive level is quite a task. Given all that had to be considered and the fact you cant please everyone and everything, I think Nascar does a good job and love racing as a hole as they have brought it about.
