What if NHRA went away from the driver-centric concept and adopted a team-centric approach to their professional ranks? Instead of entering a driver into competition, you would enter a team. The team would compete for points throughout the year in an effort to win win a championship, same as always. The difference here is that it would allow part-time teams that maybe rely on rotating drivers to compete for as if they were a full-time team. Of course there would have to be a few rules so don't go flaming me about rules this and rules that. In addition, it would promote the sport in a different light and allow more personalities into the mix. We wouldn't always just be focused on the drivers that compete for a whole season. Yes, their job is important, but so is every single job on the team. I could see where this might have great marketing benefits for smaller teams and even the larger teams where they could field more cars with more drivers and yet still compete for a championship. We need to find ways to diversify. We have way to many drivers and not enough teams. If each of those drivers can bring some funding to a team and the team can compete for a complete season, everyone would get credit for their success (or lack there of). This is by no means a complete solution, just some thoughts on a Thursday.
