"Gentlemen, start your motors!"

Racers: "Uh, they are on, you just can't hear them."

"Oh. Carry on then."

Maybe that will be the thing which finally boots the sh!tshow OFF tv. I don't and won't miss it, and I look forward to something more entertaining to replace it. Extreme dominoes anyone?

Sorry electric car racing needs to be done without the driver (and without the fans) much like formula E but push the engineers for driverless cars, make it a legit eningeering competition.

Gentlemen start your motor sounds...
Pit stops are battery changes, teams cheat by incorporating solar cells into everything...

Nascar will probably cease to exist before we get to that crap. They totally alienated their real fan base, catered to the bandwagon crowd, now look what we have. Empty seats.

Well, looks like everything NASCAR does is just a form of "Death of a thousand cuts" Slowly killing themselves in a slow painful way!
