Nascar,please,pleeeeeeeeeeease,Give us a race that finishes under green!
How about a mandatory red flag when ever there is a caution with five
laps to go. Alot of us were waiting for the  big ending and it never
happened.

There goes a solution I haven't thought of.  This way they can't say,
"Well, we have to run a certain distance, cars might run out of fuel,
yada, yada, excuses..."  I remember them doing that once in a BGN race
at a short track in  Florida a few years back.  What happens if the
caution comes out on lap 198 of 200?  There would have to be at least
two laps of caution for pace car pick-up and leave-off.  They could
always extend the race distance, but oh no, they don't want to do
that.
