    Take the 'racing' out of caution pitstops.
    If for no other reason than safety.

    Typical caution pitstop...
    Race to not break speed limit.
    Pit crew racing to service cars
    with minimal pitcrew.

    Let the race be decided by the drivers racing the cars,
    Not the lug wrench guy.

    Get back to caution pitstops being safe and complete.

    I haven't watch very many laps of the three races this year, just been so busy. But has stage racing really had an impact on Follow the Leader? Blaney dominated Daytona in terms of number of laps lead, Harvick killed it in Vegas.

    The Stage cautions should not count toward the lap count.

    Stage racing isn't really racing, it's just a phoney gimmick. It's the equivalent of stopping the Kentucky Derby at each qtr pole and declaring a "stage" winner. The guy crossing the finish line first is the only winner, everybody else lost.

    Finally get back to the chance for a true early start Sunday afternoon race that might be finished before dinner time and it gets snowed out. :(

    I feel for the fans at the track, though. I lived through the Bristol Snow weekend 10 years ago:

    Do you remember? The Bristol 'Snow-Bowl Derby' | Official Site Of NASCAR

    I still remember walking up the big hill to the track before the start of the Xfinity race that day when it was snowing so hard we almost couldn't see the track in front of us. One of those memories I wouldn't trade for anything, but wouldn't want to do again. :D

    Would be SHR 5 - Field 1 if Silver Spoon didn't do what the #3 car does best and take some one out.

    Thank God... Another "24 Hours of Bristol" is in the books.

    Sunburnt & 82* on Saturday, Soaked on Sunday, Frostbite today. Never thought I'd watch a race while being sleeted on. :confused:o_O

    ...and after all that, the :censored 18 wins. :mad:

    Anyways...off the thaw out.

    Happened to me a couple years ago the first year they moved the Atlanta race in Hampton to just after Daytona. It sucked
