Even if the economy is a factor and the core NASCAR fans


were hit harder, do you think that is a bigger factor than all the tinkering NASCAR has done with the rules of the sport?

Today's NASCAR looks like what you see at the local tracks with the dividing of the race into 3 segments and basically having a "winner" for each segment. I can handle not seeing the legendary racing families have a family member drive in the races. I can even handle to some extinct changing which tracks get to host a race or the race dates. However, when you change the rules which helped the sport gain its popularity, then is it still the same sport? I mean if football or basketball added a penalty box or limited substitutions to only 3 per game, then would they still be the same sport?
