    Ill disagree with that. In 1989 Richard Petty failed to qualify for 4 races. Albeit Nascar came up with a slew of rules to ensure that wouldnt happen again, it happened. In 1999 and 2000 Nascar actually limited the amount of champions provisionals that could be used and Darrell Waltrip (who could be argued still had a strong fan base) was sent home from several events.

    My point is its not unheard of for Nascar to have a system that sends a superstar home from time to time.

    But every other point that is made on the top 35 I agree with. Plus who cares if Sam Hornish misses a race? I dont get what the outcry is for guys outside the top 35 is.

    My opinion is only that there may be too many locked in. I understand why its in place, but I wish there were only 20 or so locked in. Not that it would make that much difference.

    Yeah, I think the number should be lower. I'd like a Top 15 better.

    The Top 35 rule is why I don't watch qualifying anymore.
