Gotta be Daytona the infield ..open it up to the fans..charge 25 bucks a piece money to the Victory Junction Gang Camp..Larry the Cable Guy as emcee..Toby Keith as entertainment..enough Bud to flaot an aircraft carrier..no prepared speeches and let's rock on....:):)

That picture just cracks me up.

I agree - move it! I like the Daytona Infield thought. That would be great.

Also, just a quick note - I have moved my blog to http://ryannewmaninfo.info

Sorry Charlie,

The super bowl is a game, the final four are games, and so on. You can't compare the two, unless you were saying "let's move the Daytona 500 every year - it is the superbowl of stock car racing and should be treated as such" then you would have an apples to apples comparison. Do the Academy awards move to other locations? No, and niether should the NASCAR Awards Banquet - not as long as it stays organized the way it is now.

Granted NASCAR isn't a stick and ball sport, but it is a road show. Moving the awards show to different cities every year would at least make the peripheral activities more accessable to more fans. And, yes, Robert, they should not only have Larry the Cable guy as emcee for the awards banquet, but Fox should broadcast at least one race with all the Blue Collar Comedy guys in the booth and as pit reporters.

Charlie

I disagree with you Bob. For sure the awards are not a game, but they are the finale of NASCAR's season. NASCAR features their so-called Super Bowl in the first week of racing. The awards are the final act - as is football's Super Bowl and the NCAA's Final Four. Do you really feel that the banquet has such a "RICH TRADITION IN NEW YORK" that it can't be moved around? Sorry, I don't buy it. Move so more fans can take ownership in the thing.

Charlie,

I wrote "not as long as it stays organized the way it is now." with regards to it moving. If they want it to be more fan accessible then I agree that it should be moved from year to year - but based on what I have seen NASCAR doing with this banquet, it isn't about the fans it is about the hype and where are you going to get the most access to the media (national and otherwise)? New York or LA, and LA is simply too far and too Hollywood for NASCAR do that (at least just yet anyway) so New York is where it should be.
