Time to by pass the France family. All the teams need to get up and walk, start a new race series and make it like other real sports and have a governing body , NOT a family run business where the "Family" does whatever it wants, makes up rules that only they care about and generally make a mess out of everything.
Yeah some of the huge owners will balk and stay, but who cares? certainly not the audience because they are gone already, WHAT do the smaller team have to lose? They're all 5 races away from bankruptcy, if the King cannot cut it what chance does a smaller team have?
Let the 5, 24, 48, 88, 17, 99, 6, 29, 18, 11 race one another (they already own Napcar if your have not noticed) America can live without these drivers. Let's move on.
Think of all the possibilities? No more stupid yellow flags (for gum wrappers) which just smell of wwf control of every race, letting a no-body like Clint Bowyer win because he is the fastest driver on the track, imagine that. Just think someone who is not a 'pretty boy' could actually win because it would be fair, WOW what a concept, hang in there Joe Nemechek your day could be coming.
The owners of the tracks will come around and so will the TV Networks, someone just needs to get the ball rolling, once such a movement gets started, watch out, America will actually have a racing series, and that will be a great day.
Either that or just go back to local racing on Friday and Saturday Nights, without any France Family involvement.
Napcar is dead to me. Drop the Stock Car because they do not race "Stock Cars" anymore.
Lets call it RHRA Racing series. Real Honest Racing in America.

They need to go back to using stock cars again ... put in a roll cage, seat, and racing suspension and fuel cell. The rest needs to be stock off the showroom floor.

Sadly, they've already passed the point of no return. There is too much $ involved and the France's will never give up control. As an example, Danica Patrick, 12 starts, average 28.8 and 28.8 average finish. For that kind of performance her purses totaled $304,000. That doesn't include her pay as a driver or the Nationwide related personal sponsorships. The sponsors won't go without TV. Look at the latest upstart football league. Not to mention most of the tracks are owned by either the France family or Bruton Smith.

I think if you want to see change, you're right, it's probably at your local track...
