    Does Nascar EVER end?

    I just saw on ESPN that they have 4 races left in their playoff system. Meaning the season won't be over untill the end of freaking November.

    The Daytona 500 (the first race of the season) is in February. That makes it nearly a 10 month season. Dumb.

    No, and think of how many resources we could save by not having racing.


    NHL teams need to be added to the favorite teams section.

    Same here. Although I think the COT has greatly reduced the quality of racing and find myself not as interested as I used to be. I still watch most every race but its not the draw for me like it once was. Going to a race live is the exception...its hard to top those.

    The season is 36 races. It may be a tad too long but they are still making money had over fist so I don't blame them for having so many races.

    I agree about the COT. The races just don't seem as competitive as they were with the last car.
    The World Series carries over into November now so Nascar isn't the only thing that is stretching the season to the very limit.

    I love NASCAR but I really feel like the shoot themselves in the foot by trying to compete with any sort of football at any level. They need to shorten their season by 10-12 races and be done with it come September.

    Agreed. Once it's September, it's football season. Most sports seasons are too long. Except NFL and college football. But it won't change because of the money.
