The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series schedule is not perfect. Like anything in life, it has its flaws, and everyone has an opinion about the best way to fix it.
Today, I offer mine.
When looking at the 2014 schedule, the first thing that sticks out is that it is very similar to last year's. Only a couple of race dates changed, but none by more than a couple of weeks.
There were no new venues added, no additional races given to current tracks and the 10-race Chase consists of the same events for the fourth consecutive season.
Overall, the Sprint Cup Series is not terrible. Sure, things like a couple more night playoff races and the inclusion of a road-course event in the Chase would spruce it up a bit. But on the whole, it could be a lot worse.
That said, with just a few adjustments, the Sprint Cup schedule could maximize on its potential and provide fans with an even better season.
In the slides ahead, I will look at six changes that would improve the schedule and make it a little more exciting than it currently is.
