Con: The safety factor
Charlotte Motor Speedway has been known in the past to have some hard hitting accidents and the new format will almost guarantee that it continues. While that might be a good thing for fans looking to see a pile up on the frontstretch that sets up a green white checkered, the accidents could have a devastating effect on the health of drivers.
In fact, Daniel Suarez injured his thumb in a wreck this season at Texas and Aric Almirola suffered a brutal back injury after a fiery wreck at Kansas Motor Speedway last year. The incident was so bad that Almirola was out for over a month.. If nothing else, NASCAR has a long history of injuries and deaths during in the sport and that could continue under this new format.
