If the drivers are only going to actually race for the final 10 to 20 laps anyway, maybe Fontana should try a 200-mile race distance next year?
Think what you might about the quality of Sunday’s Bristol Cup race, but one thing that stood out was the stunning amount of empty seats in the grandstands.
