#2 Shorten races
Another crucial aspect in the evolution of The NASCAR playoffs is to shorten the races themselves. Of course this is a change that NASCAR needs to make to just about every race on the circuit, but it becomes even more important in the playoffs. In fact, shortening races could be another thing that goes a long way in bringing fans back to the sport.
Think about it! NASCAR is again forced to compete with The NFL for the entirety of their postseason and its a fight they keep losing. With that in mind, why not make a race shorter, which will add excitement and intensity to the race itself, but also make it so it doesn’t take up a lot of time. At least this way, it will be an easier to decision to make for fans to watch the race or at least pop in a bit more.
