Several big names in NASCAR are lamenting the sanctioning body’s move that reduces the number of weekends off in 2017 from three to just two.

Dale Earnhardt Jr., Kevin Harvick crew chief Rodney Childers and Joey Meier, spotter for Talladega winner Brad Keselowski, took to Twitter to express their feelings about the weekend that got away.



Fans also are unhappy, as well.
