    Sorry but I fully disagree. Whoever wins the first race is starting 3rd and the second race is starting 4th and so on. Tell me how this is not so for setting the field up through 30 or whatever it is? They have been doing this because its call Speedweek for a reason. To give fans some form of action over the course of the week. I am up for almost any racing action so I will take it. Better than sitting here bitching about it.

    Of course I should have included racing that is not covered by media or on TV. I stand corrected.

    In theory perhaps, but that's not the way it works in the end.

    Watch closely further down the field, those with higher finishing positions in the Twin qualifying races are
    shuffled behind those whom were in lower finishing positions. It's a game of musical chairs with NASCAR
    officials in a locked booth high above the circuit stopping the music at their whim.

    And, the thing is, even with all the heavy handed outright manipulation, they're absolutely shameless about
    it.

    Just as with the convoluted NASCAR points scoring system which is all but irrelevant due to the "Chase"
    procedure, no one (even NASCAR officials) can explain it.

    Even long time NASCAR apologists are fed up with all the nonsense. NASCAR broadcast ratings and ticket
    sales are down across the board with all the idiotic rules changes and "manufactured drama" (Burton Smith's
    words, not mine).

    As long as she actually goes away - that is all that matters.
