Much has been said over the last couple of years that NASCAR needs new "rivalries" - as in a good guy vs a bad guy.
- Make Kyle and Kurt angrier.
- Light Harvick's fuse so he'll go off.
- Feed Smoke's surliness.
- Keep kicking JoLo until he fights back.
- Repeat Jeff Gordon's slap fights against Kenseth, Jeff Burton and Bowyer in the hopes he'll drum up some sort of rivalry after 20 years in Cup.

...and I'll take the time-tested rivalry.
Though I do have to concede I sheepishly wouldn't mind the return of a truly tougher rivalry - maybe one along the lines of the King vs. Bobby Allison (and his fans).
