I confess that I'm not a NASCAR expert -- I've covered just one of those things, Bill Elliott won at Long Pond in a Mustang -- but I enjoy the personalties. And I liked the idea that they drove souped-up versions of what was in a showroom. I had three Monte Carlos in the 1970s and '80s, those front-end heavy tanks with eight cylinders and 351 horsepower, so I used to pull for the Chevy guys. Now, they'll be running the generic Car of Tomorrow and, hopefully, it'll be a safer machine for the drivers. But it takes away that rooting interest thing.
