Re: NASCAR goes to knock-out qualy

Hmmm, I used to be a very avid watcher. My step father got me into watching motor sports but over the years I've moved away from NASCAR as it was literally becoming the same race every weekend. They needed some new ideas and this is certainly one. Very cool. I still would love to see a two tire stra...
