  • Get Rid Of Group Qualifying – One thing that needs to be changed in NASCAR, for the love of all that is unholy, is this group qualifying junk. The debacle at Daytona with Reed Sorenson and Clint Bowyer has left me with a bad taste in my mouth. Don’t even think about starting in about how it will make qualifying “exciting.” I’m buying a ticket to see an exciting race complete with donuts on the frontstretch and a Victory Lane celebration. No matter what you do, I could not care the slightest bit who starts where and who ends up with the pole. Stop cramming it down my throat. I’m not paying to see that. It was a bad idea from the start and if they were concerned about race setups, well, we do have practice sessions for a reason.
  • Move On From The Waltrips – Get the Waltrips off of the NASCAR coverage. It is bad when one of our writers can easily pick five dumb things they say every week. Mikey should stick to owning a car and Darrell can enjoy retirement with Stevie. Jeff Gordon is available for the booth, Dale Jarrett is available for the pre-race. The television coverage will be so much enjoyable. Don’t get me wrong, I loved DW as a racer when I was a kid. Now, the act is old and I put it on mute so I miss boogity (well you know the rest).
