    Cup RACE thread --- Texas

    I notice the announcers talk about the tire problems, but avoid speculating that NASCAR might have made a bad wheel/tire decision.

    Current Generation Word

    There’s no shortage of issues with this new car, especially, but not limited to, wheels and tires. Then there’s the fire issue with rubber build up, steering and even suspension. I’m not a mechanical engineer, but in my humble opinion the first season with the new car continues to be something...

    Chicago - 2023

    An event like this will draw more than NASCAR fans. The south and west sides of Chicago are hotbeds of drug dealing and shootings. Keeping these dirtbags out will be a challenge. If just a couple of these creeps get in and do their dirty work this could turn out to be a PR disaster for NASCAR...

    Chicago - 2023

    Has anyone seen a detailed layout of the entire area NASCAR has arranged for? Unless I’m mistaken the course itself has been identified, but I’d like to see what’s been allocated for pits, hauler space, seating, etc. On another subject, Chicago’s mayor has been taking grief from a couple of...

    Hamlin and Busch Diqualified?

    Just read a post race inspection disqualified both. Anyone know if true, and if so, why!

    Cup RACE thread --- Bristol dirt

    I suppose my advancing years is responsible for my opinion NASCAR should forget the dirt, COTA and the ROVAL.

    Cup RACE thread --- Bristol dirt

    For me the jury is still out on Bristol/Dirt. That said, I wonder if NASCAR considered air intakes up higher on the car. I’m sure radiator air intake could have been engineered.

    7 Car Penalty

    The penalty was based upon an improperly installed wheel/tire. Anyone know exactly what was improper? If the lug wasn’t tight during a pit stop, how would anyone know? Because the lug came off is it assumed it wasn’t installed properly? Could there have been a defective hud or lug? If if it...

    Kyle Bush Sponsor?

    The 19 car wore an “Ethyl M” logo, but Kyle’s fire suit and the uniforms of his pit crew the “M & M” logos. Was Ethyl M just a one race sponsor?

    West Coast Races

    Do the teams have and/or rent temporary spaces/shops for the west coast series of races?

    Race Flyovers

    The last 2 or 3 races I’ve watched have had flyovers, but the aircraft have not been military. Is something going on?

    Chevy and NASCAR - Day’s numbered?

    In the first 6 months of 2021 Ford delivered over 30,000 Mustangs. Dodge also delivered 30,000+ Challengers. Chevy only 6,000 Camaros. All this has lead to the belief Chevy is going to drop it. I’m not alone in believing Chevy’s interest in the performance market is waning. If this is so, is...

    Car Security?

    With the Xfinity race earlier today, I have to assume the cup cars had to be removed from the track, presumably in their haulers. If overnight modifications were not permitted, how did NASCAR insure teams complied. Did officials supervise the loading and the put seals on the haulers?

    Truck Series Question

    How/why NASCAR decide on the size (5/8?) for the truck series? Same question w/regard to engine specs.
