Fans take up Chase Elliott proposition as debate continues on the topic

Back in September, NASCAR released its schedule for the 2023 NASCAR Cup Series season. After seeing it, Chase Elliott gave some opinions regarding the type of race NASCAR could look for in the future.

He wrote, “Less=More. I like night races too.” His message sparked some debate with the fans but many were quick to praise his recommendation for NASCAR.

 

While not in the same light, NASCAR writer Austin Konenski recently suggested a different approach to the current Cup Series schedule. His suggestion included shortening the season so that it would end at most in the middle of September and also bringing back mid-week races.

Many fans were quick to point out that the opinion was what the 2020 champion said in September. However, not everyone was convinced by the success of the mid-week races, not because they didn’t want it but because those races would have bad ratings and the networks wouldn’t like it.

 

NASCAR did try mid-week races during the Covid so as to compensate for the lack of racing. And it didn’t turn out to be as successful as they might have wished for. While Elliott’s wish seems exciting, NASCAR’s SVP of Media Brian Herbst poured cold water on it by saying that the current schedule is the most practical one for NASCAR.
