      In 2009, the NASCAR Bud Shootout Race has been changed, and I’m not sure it’s a good one. In fact, it just feels like one great big car manufacturer commercial.

      In previous years, those participating in this very first race of the season were poll setters from the prior year. It was prestigious and something the drivers worked hard for. It meant something to be a racer in the NASCAR Bud Shootout. It

      was a thrill, and it meant that the race was a smaller one, maybe twenty or so drivers, depending upon how many unique pole setters there were.

      In one of their worst decisions ever, NASCAR changed the rules so that now the top six drivers for each of the four manufacturers (Chevrolet, Ford, Toyota, and Dodge) are automatically in the NASCAR Bud Shootout Race. In addition, they added some wild cards, meaning that this will be ...

      • the largest field ever to be in a Bud Shootout — twenty-eight total drivers.

        Some of these drivers have barely even raced in NASCAR. Joey Logano is the best example. He has no business in the Shootout. Then there’s Matt Kenseth, who was the only one brave enough to call NASCAR out a little on the Bud Shootout Selection Show, saying he didn’t understand why he was in the Shootout when Ryan Newman was

        not. Kenseth is known for starting races in the back. He doesn’t win polls. To the contrary, the Rocketman, as Newman is called, is known for leading the field with a series of poll wins.

        It makes no sense, and it’s ruined a classic race. The NASCAR Bud Shootout Race is no longer a shootout of the fastest cars; rather, it’s now just a way for the car manufacturers to plug their names.
