Kevin Swindell says the 100 lappers need stages that pay points so the middle of the race is more exciting.

What are your thoughts everyone?

This could be fun.

I am not in favor of it in any series including the one that runs the cars with doors and has southern roots.

The empty stands, shows what the fans think of artificial racing.

Stages are fine to use to pay points but the fake yellow is an abomination. Pay points or $ if u want but stopping the race for a fake yellow is the worst. Leaves no incentive for the leader to really try to run off and hide. Why push too hard when u know a fake caution is coming at designated time.

Might as well add a D to the end of it, and call it staged racing and remove all doubt!

The real challenge and reason for 100 lappers is a race of that distance, not couple of sprints. The driver who takes care of his tires,adjusts to track, fuel load and also drives a great race while dealing with traffic usually wins these races. USAC silver crown is the only throw back series left running these type races,sprint and midgets are short sprint races these days. I think that's a lot of what makes silver crown racing great to me is the tradition,big champ cars and big dirt tracks and long exciting races.

Probably a great idea. The average age of the fans in the stands is high enough that they can use the break to hobble down from the stands to take a leak,get a refill of Geritol, and not miss any of the action.
