    Yeah, let me clarify... I don't have any problem with the phase out of the decals themselves. What I am worried about is what they will do with the extra space. I don't want to see the positioning of the number change.

    Ok, this is a head scratcher to me. It's ok with me if they do like Furniture Row and phase out a lot of the contigs. Frankly, you don't really know what the contig award is for most of the time. Number placement is a totally different animal. As long as I've known it to be they have been on the door area, I might be wrong, if so feel free to correct me. It's what makes stock car racing stand out from other forms of racing. *shrug*

    Gotcha. 100% agree with you here. Looked up an article from when they first started allowing K&N teams to move the number and the quote was that "A NASCAR spokesperson said there were no current plans to adopt a similar vehicle paint scheme option in NASCAR's national series." Let's hope it stays that way.

    I remember the same outrage when the green American Ethanol fuel inlet first made it's appearance

    Exactly what I was thinking. Holy shit were people outraged by that, all saying it was going to ruin scheme, etc. I don't even notice it anymore.

    I don't know anything about why it's gone, but the program was started to help the teams financially. I'm assuming this will be just for cup.

    But, basically, the program awards and/or gifts money to teams who carry the decals. The highest performer of their category is awarded extra. It's a contingency for sponsorless teams. Who doesn't have a sponsor anymore? There's no need for the program anymore.

    I have always liked how the clean the cars look without the contingency stickers. Although I do understand the contingency program, support, and wishes it would stay as is. I think this is kind of a dumb idea. I have also heard that removing the contingency stickers would allow the teams to sell space for sponsorship. Which I don't really see happening since some of these teams are having trouble selling sponsorship on the space that they have now on the cars. I also like having the sponsor logo on the door with the number on the rear quarter. Only if it is a test car. Lol. I know with the test cars sometimes the teams will put the sponsor logo on the door. Although mostly is was way back when. I think it's unique and something different. However when it comes to their regular painted race cars I think the number and sponsor logos should stay where they are now.

    I will have to wait and see what the program is like and what the cars look like before making any judgment on this.... just give them a chance

    Thing about this picture is...it still has contingencies. So NASCAR could do this anytime they please. Maybe we should wait and see what comes of this.

    Well the point wasn’t really that it had contigs. The point was that removing them makes it easier for nascar to do something like this and it looks fucking hideous.
