NASCAR drivers find passing tough at Brickyard
IndyCar has figured out how to make the 500 more exciting _ now it’s NASCAR’s turn, even if there might not be much the series leaders can do about it.
“It’s a one-groove track. It’s not going to change,” Dale Earnhardt Jr. said. “I don’t care what you do. It’s not the race car. It’s not the tire or nothing like that. It’s just the track. It’s one groove, four, 90-degree corners. I mean, there’s not much you can do about it.”
Single-file racing sure beats the Goodyear tire debacle of 2008. And it’s better than not having the race at all on the circuit.
But the event clearly needs a boost _ whether it’s installing lights and turning it into a night race or moving it later on the schedule to launch the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship. Plenty of ideas were kicked around this weekend in the garage. There were just no easy answers.
