NASCAR hasn't been the same since legend Dale Earnhardt died in 2001 at the Daytona 500.

The sport has seen it's fan base dwindle going from selling out speedways all over the country to barely selling tickets for a spring race at Bristol, a track that once had a 10-year waiting list. Experts say the lack of star power and compelling racing are the main reasons for the sports decline.

Some say NASCAR moving away from it's hardcore fan base in the South and having the season end in Homestead is a reason.

For NASCAR fans in Georgia, we have seen NASCAR go from two races per year, the second closing the season out at Atlanta Motor Speedway to having a single early season spring race. What has happened?
