The ROI is diminishing because NASCAR continues to drive their fans awayAs far as number placement goes, I honestly couldn't care less. I know there are traditionalist out there who think the numbers should stay on the door. I'm not one of those people. I'm more interested in the race itself and the look of the car comes second. So put them on the rear quarter panel, put them on the rear part of the door. I mean, get those Taxi signage and put the numbers on there for all I care. This is a sport that relies on sponsorship to exist and most companies see diminishing ROI when it comes to sponsoring a NASCAR team or a NASCAR race. So, you have to do what you have to do to get those Benjamin's.
I'm interested to see the look of each manufacturer.Sounds like spy camera time. Perhaps Biffle can come through.
Some big hitters quoted in this. It certainly sounds like they’re content to bring the Gen 6 out a few more times at least before they’ve figured out the new car.
And it's not like rally cars jump at 100MPH. They are incredibly fragile...oh wait?Not to be nit picky, but most rally cross course have gravel dirt. Whereas most dirt oval use some form of wet clay because clay holds moisture better. Rally cross isn't as concern about retaining moisture.
Kinda sounded to me like Marks was talking about things like the diffuser, and they don’t want to take a newly-designed car and start stripping important bits from it right away.Hearing the comparisons made to the fragility of IndyCar is less than encouraging. Also, they might not want to tear up a bunch of Gen 7 cars at Bristol, but they are fine with totaling many more at Daytona? Odd.
I don’t think that’s ever been in question. The rollout of the new car and new wheel/slick tire have always been linked together. Have any tests with 2022 dimensions been performed on dirt yet?To think that his car wasn't designed in accordance with Goodyear being involved in the development of the tire being used hasn't been paying attention to all of the testing they have been doing.
