Are you able to provide a supporting link for this statement?
From the drivers mouth? You watching the TV coverage? They interviewed Conner and he said steering failed. Said you could just spin the wheel and he'd never experienced anything like that. As for Cody Wre, guys on DBC mentioned it right at end of segment.

That’s a shame. You’ll miss this video of Ware’s “steering failure” ...



Can’t imagine why it failed. Probably a crappy-ass part.

Considering most of the car problems are from teams such as this. It should be considered the quality of the teams and their car prep work before jumping the damn shark. If the well prepared car teams are having problems also that's another thing

How did the RF get damaged? Let's work thru this one thing at a time.

But once again the car is a WORK IN PROGRESS. Regurgitating the same stuff over and over accomplishes nothing we all know what the problems are the car is too stiff. But how do you soften it up without making it dangerous in a crash is the answer.
I was asked for a supporting link.

Didn't sit still long enough. Pulse is jacked up.

Dodge confirms what we all knew... :(


NASCAR said they killed their HP because supposedly new potential OEM's found that to be more attractive for their business models going forward. Here we have a company in Dodge that's also going away from huge HP and going electric in the next 2 years and not even they want to join. Funny.

So where are these new manufacturers that were so interested?

Not surprising they didn’t commit, but it is interesting that RFK held exploratory talks with them. I can’t possibly imagine the Roush name separating from Ford.

Also the all-electric series isn’t being debuted next season as originally planned, according to this article.

It seems to me that the crumple zones are considerably smaller in this car. A return to 750-800 HP on shorter tracks and a hard/soft compound tire is probably all we need

Camry 2.0 already, @Revman?? On the Teardown, Gluck said Denny told him post-race that NASCAR are letting Toyota change their nose next year after some recent wind tunnel testing showed they were behind.
Interesting. I heard Denny talking about the car post race....Makes me wonder how the cars could be different at all, really.

I’m surprised by this one. Unfortunate.


I guess they're waiting for their penultimate race to be a complete dumpster fire before they consider making changes that anybody with the IQ of a houseplant can see needs to be made. NASCAR's new tagline should be "Behind the Curve!"

Wet weather package:
The short oval tracks that are likely to see the availability of the wet weather package include places like Martinsville Speedway and Phoenix Raceway, along with the possibility of others like New Hampshire Motor Speedway. This is more of a wet surface solution than a true rain-racing solution, but it could significantly reduce race delays when there is rain. The best way to look at this solution is that it could replace the last thirty or forty minutes of jet drying, instead allowing the cars to go racing on damp pavement.
One development in the package that will be seen in 2023 is an updated rain light. It will still flash in wet weather conditions, but will now go solid when the driver gets on the brakes, a huge help when visibility is low and drivers can't tell when the car in front starts braking. There will be two rectangular lights mounted inside the rear window and two lights mounted below between the rear bumper and diffuser.
