Track Changes That Would Make the Sprint Cup Series More Exciting

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.
