    Not what it used to be and you can see that on the track and even more in stands. My last year there was probably 2009. It was packed. I still can’t believe it when I see the stands for the spring race.
    I watched a bit today and saw Harvick interview during rain delay. When they asked him if track was getting back to what it was when he coming into NASCAR, he smirked and said “not the track of my early era”. In other words, it stinks compared to then.

    Generally most do well in late 20ís and throughout their 30ís. Like almost all sports todays drivers are in better shape and more physically fit than drivers from previous eras. With money in sport being what it is today, I donít see anyone winning 7 championships ever again- Jimmie might win another- because these guys are set financially so early.
    I will say that I have no doubt that Dale Sr would have won championship the year he passed. He finished 2nd year before well into his 40ís and Harvick finished the year 7th without Daytona points and with a car set up for Dale. Even won race or two.
