If you are like me, you watch the first 20 laps of the Cup race, go do some chores for a few hours, and return to the couch for the last 20 laps to watch the end. I actually enjoyed the Camping World pick up truck races better, because they were much shorter and less of a time investment. -Nascar has made a radical format change to make you stay in front of the tube throughout the 500 mile race. There will be 2 stage races and then a final stage that determines the event winner each Sunday. The stage races award points but the final stage awards much more. Sort of like motocross. It may work. www.nascar.com/content/nascar/en_us/news-media/articles/2017/1/23/new-nascar-race-format-2017-announced.html

"Haven't been a fan of "turn left" racing since a kid. I might just check it out now though!" I prefer road course racing too. NASCAR is a better soap opera. "A somewhat related comparison may be the NHRA drag racing 4-wide-format." The NHRA four wide format frustrates me. I can't watch four supercharger explosions at once.
