Here lately the NASCAR races  have been less than entertaining, take for example last time at California Speedway where the only action happened in the last 10 laps. But when you throw in the restrictor plates and say Talladega, things change in a hurry and you better look fast if you want to see who won.  Even if you don't like racing a win by less than 2-thousandths of a second is pretty dang close. The thing about the big tracks,Daytona and Talladega, is the drafting model has changed. Instead of the long freight train of ten or fifteen cars going fast, it is now faster for a pair of cars to hook up and go fast two by two. It makes for some strange bedfellows but some interesting racing.
