i was not a big dale sr fan growing up but i really feel that when he passed so did nascar. i know you really cant say that but i really feel that way. he would not of let them do most of the sh-- thay have done. when nascar also got in to building cars it also went down hill. the resrictor plate to this day is dumbest move yet. get rid of the mega teams 2 car teams are fine. but the nail in the coffin for me when they left north wilksboro a track that was thier from the beginning. i dont watch and i dont miss it at all!!!
