I am glad they are going to have the duals, they are fun to watch. The excitment of who is going to finally get in makes for a fun and exciting week.
Merry Christmas everyone.

I'm glad to hear that they are having the Duels... but they still have seriously messed up the Shootout!

Darn! I have always LOVED the duels! The racing is usually so fun. Course, my all time favorite would have to be 2001... with Dale Earnhardt workin' the draft with a rookie named Vickers learning the ropes trying to stick to the veteran's bumper! *chuckle*

France is a jerk and I'm in agreement with Jan. If he keeps on, it will soon be that NASCAR won't be worth watching at all. You're right, if it ain't broke, don't fix it. Sorry to my English teachers but those are the only words that fit in this situation.

Keep on moving no matter how small the steps. May the Good Lord take a liking to you and yours always!

I don't know if I'll miss them or not, but why mess with a good thing? I didn't think there were going to be any major changes for 2009. That sounds major to me.

I don't know, but I think Brian France better be careful before he makes too many changes to the way races are done. At the rate he is going, Nascar won't be worth watching in a couple of years. Like you said, why keep trying to fix something that ain't broke????

Yeah... and the Shootout won't the be same now that it has to be "evened out" among the manufacturers.
