How would you revamp the track you find the most boring?

    The track I hate the most is also the one that is the closest to me.

    Pocono

    First off, I would renovate the bathrooms there... they are just...just something Iguess lol.

    2nd I would drop the race down to 400 miles

    3rd, I would put seating around turns 2 and 3 and have shuttles available to get people back to the main area.

    Any of them. I'd put land mines, water puddles, oil slicks, barriers, and banana peals on the track.

    Me thinks somebody plays too much Mario Kart. :)

    As for me, I would love for Kansas to have some higher banking in the turns--just SOMETHING to get people stop saying "Well, this track is just like Chicagoland." It makes me want to pull my hair out. I'll never understand what ISC was thinking building 2 identical tracks within a 8 hour drive of each other.

    BUT Kansas WILL have something Chicagoland doesn't:

    a 2nd cup race.

    Actually, I have never played the game. I just remember the commercials.

    I have only been to Dover Downs and the Poconos. I would change the seating at the Poconos; that is for sure.

    I posted on this last week. They may not build it if Wyandotte County passes a bill that would not allow smoking on casino floors. Plus Chicagoland has something Kansas doesn't, night racing.

    Yeah, I saw that, I'm a little nervous about it. I'm waiting to hear more for sure. I appreciate you posting that!

    It baffles me that they would not build it just because of a smoking ban. if people want to gamble bad enough they'll go in there, toss their money and hold off on the smoking. Do they seriously think they would lose out on a ton of customers just because of a smoking ban. I'm not much of a betting man, but I bet they have more to lose if they don't build it.

    wait that is the best one you never have a huge line and its clean, and the "bathroom guides" are a just hysterical to listen to.

    I would add South Boston's Bologna Burger to all there menu's. Then after qualifying i would invert the entire field. So i would not have any top teams going as slow as possible, i would make qualifying on the pole worth 1,000,000 and 100 championship bonus points

    yes i know the second part is dumb, but them bologna burgers are the rednecks hamburgers

    One of my biggest regrets is not visiting South Boston while I lived in Virginia.
     
  11. A lottery or bingo machine for rain outs, pick a ball thats your spot in the pits and your starting spot!!

    Well, just completely of the top of my head......

    Bulldoze totally the california track and make it a richmond/bristol hybrid.

    And I won't even get started on all the 1.5 tracks. (other than saying it's slowly killing the sport)

    "other than saying it's slowly killing the sport"

    slowly? Its happening quicker than that. Kind of funny the economy isnt killing the sport at Bristol and Richmond huh?

    I dont think 1.5 mile tracks are the problem. The rules package/tires they have for all the series just arent good enough to put on any kind of show on these tracks. This weekend was alright for cup, the race was decent. But in my opinion, you slow these cars down by 10mph, and give them tires they can actually race on. Think of it this way, why is Talladega such a good show? The cars are slow, and comfortable. Overall make it to where the drivers are comfortable racing in traffic, make it to where the cars are capable of racing in traffic, and suddenly the 1.5 mile tracks arent as much of a spawn of satan as they were. This whole idea of "well it puts it back in the drivers hands" is assanine. When was it ever out of the drivers hands? Never in this sports history have crappy handling cars ever put on a good show.
     
  15. The machine has 35 balls in it and your top 35 pick first as if they are qualifing, then you get the other one out for the go or go homers, if you dont get in then you go home. really there is no really fair way for a rainout, but this seem at least to me the most logical.

    I wish they would add banking to California. Make it the same as Texas World Speedway, 24 Degrees of banking...:)
