#7 Keep Dale Jr in the booth
Speaking of third generation drivers, NBC needs to make sure that they keep Dale Jr in the booth for as long as possible. Not only is that evident by how much talent Jr brings to the broadcasting booth, but also by how much fans seem to enjoy hearing him. In fact, Jr staying with NBC could be crucial in NASCAR keeping the older crowd interested.
Of course some fans probably aren’t going to see Jr as that crucial to the continued success of NASCAR, but as far as broadcasting is concerned, it really seems like that is the case. Maybe that changes at some point and NBC could eventually get another popular driver to take over on commentary, but for now, Jr is their golden ticket to keeping longtime fans interested.
