I am going to keep this short, sweet, and to the point.

NASCAR would be wise to take restrictor plates off of the cars because of three reasons:

-Much faster speeds (200+ mph)
-Save a driver from getting killed
-Save fans from getting killed by flying debris


Why NASCAR won't:

For the driver's "safety."
Restrictor plates equal big wrecks. People LOVE big wrecks, which means more money for NASCAR, which makes them selfish.


Look. Personally, I think it would be beneficial for NASCAR to let them race without the restrictor plates. I would pick somebody's safety over money any day. But, if NASCAR feels otherwise, then that makes them especially greedy and inconsiderate.
