Top 10 Ways to Make the Labor Day California Race More Exciting

Frontstretch Top Ten · Frontstretch Staff · Tuesday September 5, 2006

 

10. Qualify 40 cars, and hold celebrity auditions for the remaining three - it can't be any worse than what we've got now!

9. Celebrity Ride-Alongs during the race with in-car cameras. Hey, it worked with ESPN!

8. Follow Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s advice to dig it up, only don't repave it; let's see some dirt track action!

7. Surprise the drivers by inverting the field after qualifying - that will make things interesting, at least for the first 50 laps or so.

6. At every caution during the Busch race, the fans get to vote one Cup Series regular out of the race the next day.

5. At lap 125 – everybody turn around and go the other way!

4. Put a big red carpet around the track and call Paris Hilton.

3. Bring in Hollywood for the box office smash sequel - “Snakes in a Racecar.”

2. Nothing says EXCITEMENT like restrictor plates!

1. Move the race back to Darlington!

Hold the race on the freeway at rush hour so they can race 4 wide like the rest of us.
