The economic downturn is affecting the world of NASCAR

Although there is still much written on the starting grid series Sprint, Nationwide and Camping World Trucks this season, the NASCAR organization could face a slowdown of its operations next season. And Sprint Cup, Red Bull has already announced that it would close its doors at the end of this season. For its part, Kevin Harvick has confirmed a rumor that was in the air since the summer, namely that it would cease the operations of its stables listed at this time Nationwide and CWTrucks.

More alarming still are the difficulties of teams at the prestigious passes ends meet. And crew of the legendary Rusty Wallace will not likely return to Nationwide in 2012, while Woods brothers, whose stables has yet won the last Daytona 500 with Trevor Bayne young, have used the logistical and technical support Team Jack Roush to submit departing a few races during the summer.

The U.S. economy has not experienced the expected recovery for two years and one of the aspects in which the population has cut the most are the displacements for leisure. Fewer people in the stands, less sponsorship on cars and poorer ratings listening on television due in part to the fact that the tests are too long and less spectacular than in previous years, all night NASCAR.

Solutions are yet simple: shorten the length of certain tests and operating expenses (limit the number of sets of tires would for example earn an average $ 50,000 per car every weekend!). But the NASCAR organization is a big steamer, slow to change course in matters of decisions and regulations. We must also admit that the pressure of the big stables Sprint Cup, which collect most scholarships on arrival is strong for the rules do not change.
