What is everyone's take on this past racing season? Favorite moments? Biggest letdowns? Etc.? Mine would have to be the departure of Winston and 76 from the sport. For 33 years, Winston has made a serious contribution to NASCAR, and I hope the torch has been past to the right people and will burn brighter than ever. There may be many changes coming in the near future, especially with Brian France now at the helm. The season ender at Homestead was definitly worth the 10 million that was spent to put more banking in the track. Now with the winter months coming up, we should make predictions and give opinions on what next year will be like with the NEXTEL name. It may be hard at first, but people should adapt quickly. I hate it for the announcers that may slip up and say Winston Cup (1st prediction). Maybe Budweiser should have put in a bid for the title. The Budweiser Cup sure does sound good.
