Top Ten Reasons Fans Failed To Show Up At Bristol Sunday

Frontstretch Top Ten · Jeff Meyer · Wednesday March 23, 2011


10. Not yet released from the asylum after listening to or reading the latest ramblings of Brian France.

Who knew Jennifer Jo Cobb would incite a revolution for fans to stand up for their beliefs a day later … by failing to show at a racetrack they no longer liked or appreciated?

9. Not taking a chance they might have to watch a Busch do another snow angel on the track.

8. They were in their basement, not wanting to be exposed to the deadly Japanese radiation plume.

7. Some are still pissed about the whole resurfacing deal and the lack of cautions and caution laps.

6. Staying home to watch it on TV so as not to miss the much beloved “Boogity, Boogity, Boogity! Let’s go short tracking, boys!” by D.W.

5. Fans are finally on to the fact there isn’t, unfortunately, a real live gopher popping up on the corners of the track.

4. They took Jennifer Jo Cobb’s lead and stood up for their beliefs in hopes of sending a message to local hotels and NASCAR in general. (You go, girl!)

3. Tickets are so easy to get that it is no longer a challenge.

2. Getting a head start for that long, arduous trip to Fontana.

1. Their new favorite “March Madness” was on … and it doesn’t refer to NASCAR anymore.

#7 & #4 definitely! I’m glad I got to see one at Bristol before they re-paved. Wouldn’t be worth the heat and the crowd with the current configuration!
