Default Nationwide Nimrods

Since I can't call them Buschwackers anymore, how about Nationwide Nimrods? Take them out of the mix and the standings look like this....

4 -1 Justin Allgaier 2833 -516 21 1 1 5 12

7 -- Steve Wallace 2488 -861 21 0 0 1 10
8 +1 Trevor Bayne 2365 -984 21 3 0 4 6
9 -1 Brendan Gaughan 2347 -1002 21 0 0 3 7
10 -- Jason Leffler 2326 -1023 21 0 0 4 7
11 +3 Michael Annett 2225 -1124 21 0 0 0 2
12 +1 Brian Scott* 2176 -1173 21 0 0 1 5
13 -2 Reed Sorenson 2167 -1182 16 0 0 6 12
14 +1 Tony Raines 2117 -1232 21 0 0 0 2

16 -- Mike Bliss 1937 -1412 20 0 0 1 2
17 +1 Kenny Wallace 1904 -1445 21 0 0 0 0
18 -1 Mike Wallace 1895 -1454 21 0 0 0 0
19 -- Ricky Stenhouse Jr.* 1799 -1550 19 0 0 1 3

21 +1 Michael McDowell 1706 -1643 20 0 0 0 0
22 -2 Eric McClure 1644 -1705 20 0 0 0 0
23 -- Colin Braun* 1603 -1746 16 0 0 0 3
24 -- Jason Keller 1586 -1763 17 0 0 1 1
25 +2 Josh Wise 1440 -1909 18 0 0 0 1

27 -1 Scott Lagasse Jr. 1328 -2021 14 0 0 0 1
28 -- Shelby Howard 1318 -2031 13 0 0 0 0
29 -- Robert Richardson Jr. 1271 -2078 15 0 0 0 0
30 -- Morgan Shepherd 1180 -2169 17 0 0 0 0
31 +2 Brian Keselowski 1099 -2250 17 0 0 0 0
32 -1 Willie Allen 1080 -2269 12 0 0 0 0

34 -- Mark Green 993 -2356 18 0 0 0 0
35 -- James Buescher* 903 -2446 10 0 0 0 1

Point is, I think it's fine to have a couple Nationwide Nimrods in the mix. But, I do not think any full time Cupster should be allowed to take points towards the driver championship. And I *really* like the idea of making them start in the back.

Your opinions and mileage may vary

Nationwide Nimrods... may take a while to stick, but it's the best one so far :d

I think reducing them to 12-15 races a year would be a start, but it would be better if there were no restriction, with Busch, Edwards and Harvick (And Keselowski) just shoving their ego's aside a bit and let others take the stage.

I also think the fact that the Nationwide schedule runs mostly as a support for Cup events hurts the series, as it is way too easy to run both. The Sonoma/Milwaukee (Road America) thing made it hard for drivers to perform double duty, but because it was once a year they could manage. More stand-alone events might help (though attendance could become a problem).

Also, I don't like the idea of letting Nimrods (hey, it's starting to stick!) start at the back, 'cause I believe when you qualify in a certain position, you should start there, and it would greatly reduce the accomplishment of pole position if not everyone runs in qualifying or some are automatically moved to the back.

And, wow, it would be awesome to see Allgaier battle Wallace and Bayne for the championship!
