NASCAR fans love two things. First, they love NASCAR, and, second, they love to hate on certain things within NASCAR. Our very own John Rizzo takes us through the 7 things that NASCAR fans love to HATE!

  • The Playoffs: Since they were introduced in 2004, the Playoffs have been controversial amongst NASCAR fans. The question John asks here is whether or not the “Regular Season” truly matters in this Playoff system.
  • Forward Door Numbers: Racing is a business, and NASCAR moved the door numbers forward starting in 2022. While a minor aesthetic detail, John talks about why it affects modern paint schemes.
  • Goodyear Tires: Goodyear tires are easy to blame for many of NASCAR’s problems. John brings in Goodyear’s biggest fan to illustrate this.
  • Low Horsepower: Low horsepower is the new trend in NASCAR, and fans are not happy. John looks at why low horsepower not only leads to a worse racing product, but it also has led to none of the benefits NASCAR promised.
  • Buschwhacking: While not as big of a problem today, Buschwhacking was a major problem in NASCAR throughout the late 2000s and early 2010s. John dives into how absurd it got, and how NASCAR has mitigated it to some extent.
  • The Broadcasts: From commentators to commercials, to the presentation, to commercials, to commercials, EVERY NASCAR fan has an opinion on the broadcasts. John looks at everything NASCAR fans love and hate about broadcasts.
  • Change: Change is hard, but, John gives a timeline for how long it takes for NASCAR fans to accept change. We have gotten accustomed to a few over time, but, they were usually controversial when introduced.

There are plenty of things NASCAR fans love to hate. Which ones do you agree with, and did John leave anything out?
