What's interesting to me is virtually all the big penalties are being received by the big teams,I guess the the smaller underfunded team can't play in that area as a 50-100K penalty would pretty much kill them.The rear window brace is the area looks like the hot topic now with at least 5 50K penalties in 12 races and maybe another tomorrow for the 42 car.Tom

Seems like you got your answer, but chose to ignore it, best listen to the "suits", who BTW, ran Nascar into the ground in the first place.midnightbluS10 wrote: ↑Sun May 13, 2018 4:30 amThat seems to be the hardcore fans answer to everything motorsports related lately. Fact of the matter is that changing the bodies to oem production bodies alone won't put fans in the seat whether it's Nascar or nhra. But you guys can keep repeating it and hoping it will.427dart wrote: ↑Sat May 12, 2018 8:20 pmNo Chryslers running NASCAR this year as they dropped out.
What IS needed is all manufacturers run a race version of what they sell in production cars and run the EXACT car the engines come in such as the REAL
Ford Mustang.Dodge Challenger or Charger and Chevy Camaro.
Nascar would find that the fans would come back too!
Considering that none of the people that have made the suggestion do any sort of market research, haven't, and likely never will....I'd say no one has a clue whether it would actually put fans in the seats. You're just guessing. Hoping. Assuming with no verifiable information, statistics or basically anything to back it up except for what you think and feel.

Not having fans in the seats doesn't mean there are less people watching. The camera coverage seen on TV is spectacular. The retired drivers watching from the booth are all amazed at the entirely different perspective. Ticket sales are not the only source of revenue for the sanctioning body.
So much to do, so little time...
