"NASCAR Date Changes"

Why is NASCAR considering all these stupid date/track changes???

Kansas is lobbying for a second date, which most likely would take a race away from California. Look, if Fontana's going back to one-race-a-year, they ought to give the date back to Rockingham, not give another to Kansas. Nothing personal against Kansas, the racing there isn't bad...but why must we have another cookie-cutter date? Same goes for Las Vegas.

In a perfect world, the schedule would look like this:

Racetracks losing a date:
1. Fontana
2. Texas
3. Loudon

Racetracks gaining a date (or a second one)
1. Rockingham
2. Darlington
3. Montreal

The road course Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in Montreal ought to be in the Chase, giving the champion more credibility. It would replace Texas in November. Rockingham would replace California in the Chase, and Darlington would replace Loudon in the Chase, as well.

The Chase would look like this:

1. Darlington
2. Dover
3. Kansas
4. Rockingham
5. Charlotte
6. Martinsville
7. Talladega
8. Montreal
9. Phoenix
10. Homestead

That way, there's a little of everything....high banked speedways, flat tracks, a short track, a plate track, cookie-cutters, and even a road course.
