EPSN often doesn't have good articles, but their 4 part series on 20th year anniversary of Dale Sr dying is good.
Hard to believe it has been 20 years.
Saw the first duel last night. It was "follow the leader" for the most part. Underwhelming. They made the length 10 laps longer to force teams to pit a number of years back. Now that race they all went fuel only. No tire strategy. If they're gonna do that, take it back to 50 laps & the 125 distance.
This new schedule - nice to add some new tracks - but why, if they want to go dirt, do they not go dirt on an established dirt track rather than putting dirt at Bristol?
Seemed like an opportunity to learn some from the COVID-reshuffled 2020 schedule and be able to work in scheduled midweek dates, as provide opportunity for some tracks to return to the schedule. Maybe it's too late. But Rockingham, Nashville Fairgrounds, North Wilkesboro, Gateway, Milwaukee, Nazareth (heck, does that track even exist anymore?)? Even if it's a concept like a Seniors tour that runs on the old classics - run with Cup cars but not necessarily in the points paying schedule.
