Saturday Night Fever
I completely love Saturday night racing, but am I the only one that feels that their weekend schedule is a bit 'out of whack'? The whole weekend just doesn't seem right, and even seems a rushed somewhat. I have often wondered if the teams have this same problem as well.
I have also heard theories how local tracks suffer from Saturday Night Cup races and that very well could be true in some parts of the country, but from what I have seen the past few years at the local dirt tracks that I regularly attend, those 'conflict' of interests don't seem to effect attendance much.
This very race last year, I attended my favorite local dirt track, however with the aid of a small hand held TeVee, I was able to somewhat follow the Cup race. The grandstands seemed just as full as a normal night and like always the racing was great.
For the handful of Saturday Night Cup races on the schedule, it maybe a small sacrifice for the 'local track owner' if it effects his attendance at all. Having Cup races on prime time TeVee can only be good for the sport as a whole. But I wouldn't want to see many more Sunday races moved to Saturday. That wheel cannot get any more rounder, but it still makes the weekend as a whole seem different for this Nascar fan.
