10. Put an extra two cars on the grid for random celebrities to serve as obstacles throughout the race. How would “new Kyle” feel if Kiefer Sutherland accidentally served as a roadblock for a few laps?
9. Let the cars run on those weepers, regardless of safety and see what happens. Oh, wait … we’ve been there, done that. Casey Mears might tell you that didn’t work out so well…
8. Have Busch, Tony Stewart, Brad Keselowski, Kevin Harvick, and Juan Pablo Montoya all sit in the heart of I-5 L.A. traffic for two hours the morning of the race… and then send them all to the rear of the field on the pace laps.
7. Make it a real fuel mileage battle: 2.2-gallon fuel tanks instead of 22. At least the gas men won’t fall asleep!
6. Bring back every NASCAR official’s secret weapon, “mystery debris” in 20-lap intervals. Something tells us people won’t complain…
5. Wait…the racing wasn’t actually horrible this time over the last five laps. Umm… hmm. Uh… North Wilkesboro rules!
4. Get rid of the new car and let them race what they sell in the dealerships for a weekend. The “Street Legal” 400 has a nice L.A. movie ring to it, right?
3. A win comes with an automatic entry into the Chase. Why not? They’re practically giving playoff spots away at this point like a 70% off sale at Wal-Mart.
2. We hear Darlington could use a second date…
1. One word: dynamite.

I would go with number 8.
Number 1 comes closest! Reconfiguring the track is the only way to save this turkey. Here is a suggestion: if you want the track length to remain two-miles, then rebuild it with the front stretch and back stretch equal lengths, but make them the same width and distance apart as Martinsville’s straights. And make the turns the same tight radius as Martinsville’s, but bank them at say a constant 45-degrees and not this “progessive banking” garbage that has killed Bristol. A two-mile long Martinsville might work. At the very least it would be better racing, so why not?
A wide track makes for boring racing, while a narrow track makes for limited opportunities to pass.
I agree with Sharon. #8
When was the last race with a 22 gallon tank?
Number 1 at all the cookie cutter mile and a halfs except Charlotte and Atlanta.
Number 1, like DoninAjax suggests, except award a Cup date to the Toyota Speedway at Irwindale. I want to give Irwindale the Cup date now, so they can get to work renovating the track for next season.
What is sadder is that Susan ever learned to operate a computer.
Perhaps she could start a “All Kyle, All the Time” website! Yeah! Bet your ass I’d be visiting……….NOT.
LMAO!!! Susan, if you were programming computers before I was born….then you are certainly in the running for Frontstretch.com’s Oldest Reader Award!!!!
And you would think a computer programmer would be more attentive to typing in details such as my name.
Besides all that, what makes your hatred of Carl any more justified or right as anyone elses supposed hatred of Kyle?
Is this a racing website or a pissing contest?
