Do you think the 4 car limit is such a good idea now that the economy is doing poorly?
Roush, Hendrick, and Childress are rich men and Helton's argument that for one of them to fold would cause too many drivers to lose their jobs doesn't seem logical to me. None of the 3 above who could field more than 4 cars will go broke. It will most likely happen to underfunded teams who can't get big sponsors like these guys can.

It's dumb. If Roush has enough money to field 5 cars, let him field 5 cars. Enough start-and-parkers get in the race as it is.

It would make sense that you could field as many cars as you could afford.

They should limit ALL teams to two cars only, and close the loophole where you can have additional teams listed as owned by your wife/mother/dog/etc. Take NASCAR back to its roots before the big money corrupted everything!

It doesn't really matter because the big teams just set up other cars under other peoples names or "Satellite teams". H E N D R I C K~M O T O R S P O R T S~R U L E S ! ! ! ! !

I think the four car limit works out just fine. You would not want to see 10 Hendricks, Roush, or Gibbs cars out there. There would be even less competition. And Schmucky as far as Toyota being in NASCAR I have not seen the problem. Toyota employs approximately 37,000 people in the U.S.. All of of the Big 3 have... More

The big thing about the 4 limit rule is that it doesn't work anyway. Top teams have yet again out-smarted NASCAR simply by listing their wives and drivers as owners of a team. They just start up satellite teams a purchase cars from the same shops... More

I'm still a little upset that the rule only affected one team, Roush. In order to really make it fair, they should have gone to a 3-car limit, that way Hendrick had to drop a car, as well. (several years ago, I was a Roush Racing fan, no questions asked, and Hendrick was the enemy. Now my favorite driver who used to... More

The way I see it is that NASCAR is going to take a competitive team away from a Competitive team. That will put another decent driver out of a job. the lower tear teams cant afford the better drivers so the better driver will have to take a pay cut to driver for a lesser team with virtually no chance of winning. I... More

You know there is a pecking order in NASCAR and without the top teams there would be no NASCAR. They bring the money, the top drivers and the excitement. I don't really care if they have 4 or 5 cars as long as they are still hanging in there racing every week.

I think that if they can have a car sponsored and have that sponsors money coming into the sport they should be able to have as many cars running in the field as possible. I think the four car limit is ridiculous, if they wanted to set a limit though they should have made it five because rousch has 5 fully functioning... More

Re-read your own question, the whole idea is to let the underfunded teams compete too without going broke. ESPECIALLY in this economy. For crap sake, DEI's #8 is freakin' parked due to no sponsorship... More
