CHARLOTTE, North Carolina – In the Late 1990s and early 2000s, NASCAR was at its peak. New 1.5 Mile tracks were opening up across the country – Kansas, Kentucky, Nashville, basically any flyover state with a handful of local hicks was getting a new 75,000 capacity palace of speed. Meanwhile every existing track was busy bolting on more grandstands to keep up with demand. Fast forward 15 years and NASCAR attendance is the worst its ever been. On the situation, NASCAR execs released a statement on the state of the sport, titled “Why Did We Build So Many Damn Seats.” Now facing an attendance crisis that only is amplified by empty seats on TV, NASCAR execs are weighing options. “Well, really we were blindsided by this.  One minute I’m at a ribbon cutting for a new 30,000 seat addition at Dover, and the next minute were stretching out Heluva Good! Sour Cream Dips banners to cover them right back up! I don’t know where we went wrong,” Lamented NASCAR’s President of Track Operations. NASCAR’s grand daddy of them all, can’t miss, game seven moment, playoff deciding, heart-stopping championship finale is next weekend at Homestead-Miami Speedway, tickets are still available.
