NASCAR is dead to me

The Car of Tomorrow, well, technically now the Car of Today, didn't help the "racing" at all at Daytona. I fully expect it will be just as bad, if not worse, at Talledega, too. You might say "how could that be, how could you say it wasn't good racing with all that passing?!?" Looked very much to me like the winner was drawn at random, that's how.

You can't pass without help. Who helps who was teammate based to some degree and then fairly random past that. But the only two teammates near each other near enough to the end were able to push past for the win. They were simply lucky to be in the right place at the right time. Sure, there were a dozen or so teams that did a nice job to put their drivers near the front at the end to be in that position, but after that it was nothing but dumb luck, in my opinion.

I might watch a short track or two, but I don't see any point in watching the big races.
