I can't believe how bad the weekend was at Phoenix International Raceway. I wasn't happy with the outcome of EITHER race. I wasn't happy with the wishy-washy talk regarding Drug Testing in NASCAR by the NASCAR officials. Why can't they just stand up and be MEN? Saying, "We are not going to tolerate Drug Abuse in NASCAR? Is that so hard to say and/or implement? To me, that stinks to high heaven and I'm almost to the point of looking for another sport to follow or at the very least something else to do with my leisure time, after all, there's always Lawn Bowling !!! NASCAR is talking out of both sides of their mouths as far as I see it. Oh yeah they want the Almighty dollars to keep rolling in but they can't even implement a drug testing program. What's the matter with NASCAR, is it going to cost too much money? I don't know about you, but I have noticed lately that they haven't been showing the Grandstands at the races much this season. Hmmmmm, could it be because they are nearly EMPTY? And all the while, at the beginning of the season they were saying how much they were going to concentrate on getting the "Old Time Fans" back? What? Really? Is this how you do it? Don't get me wrong, I LOVE this sport, but they are making it very difficult for me to hold my interest when they keep changing the rules and messing up the sport from week to week or now even hour by hour. What are they going to do with all the money that they won't be getting next week, as they take yet another weekend off? I'm sure if they had their way they would run a race 52 weeks a year. What's the problem NASCAR officials? Money, Money, Money, remember?
I'm sure that I'm not the only disgusted NASCAR Fan. I won't even go into the fact that we had a Baseball game on TWO channels and nothing on NASCAR until around lap three, but what the heck do they care, they've already gotten their Almighty dollars, right? But they have the berries to complain about TV ratings being down! Yeah right ! They need to go bankrupt and see how it is then !!! Then there are the sponsors, but I'll save that one for another blog !!! Let me hear from you, what do you think? Am I wrong?
