Plate racing used to be very fun to watch but that ended about the time Jr's dominance at Talladega ended. As you posted previously the racing in general has been lacking with the new car. Nascar has to know it and know that it has affected fans interest. I used to watch every race religiously. I had tickets for Daytona in Feb. for Speedweek and in July for the summer race. The combination of the economy affecting my business, having 2 kids, and the racing not being as good made it tolerable for me to give up my tickets. Tickets are plentiful and easy to get now so there is no need to spend all the $$$ renewing tickets every year. I hope the racing is better this year.
