2011 NASCAR Sprint Cup Season Begins Sunday

Finally, I"ve been waiting for this day since the last race in November last year!  The 2011 NASCAR Sprint Cup season begins this coming Sunday with the running of the Daytona 500.

I'm not much of a sports guy, although I watch some hockey, and a little football, and some baseball, but Stock Car Racing is my thing....I love nothing more then going to the local tracks in the summer time and hearing the roar of the engines and the smell of the hot iron and the rubber.  It is truly a beautiful thing!

For those of you familiar with NASCAR, there are some changes to the rules this year following Jimmy Johnson's fifth championship in a row, surpassing that of even his mentor and the man that introduced him to Hendrick Motorsports, Jeff Gordon who is a legend in racing in his own right.


It's been quite an offseason for NASCAR following Jimmie Johnson's fifth consecutive championship. Not only is there a new point system across all three national series, but also added were wild cards in the Chase and drivers have to pick just one series to run for the championship.
The changes were made with an eye on competition and the fans, to make the sport better than ever. But which rule will have the biggest impact? Bill Kimm and Mark Spoor weigh in with their thoughts, read theirs and then weigh in with yours in the comments below. And don't forget to vote in the poll at the right.

Which rule change for 2011 will have the most positive impact?

I am looking forward to a exciting season this year.  I hope to see some wins from my boy Jeff Gordon this year, it would certainly be nice to see him in Victory Lane again, I also hope to see some good things from all of the Hendrick Drivers and even Tony Stewart of Stewart/Haas Racing who runs their cars with Hendrick motors in them. 

"Boogity, Boogity, Boogity boys, let's go racin!!!"
