I rather doubt Mr. Wilke intended to minimize the efforts of other teams.

It’s racing. There are winners and others.

I think the car is going to need some tweaks when it goes from testing to week to week racing. Some drivers will have a field day complaining, most won't say much. That's my guess. Going from the drawing board to real life almost always will point out some flaws in the design.

I think they are going to have fits with the higher clearance and the underbody that is supposed to create downforce. 40 cars stirring up the air is hard to replicate in a lab and I think they are going to lose more down force than they expect. They could be a handfull to drive, and that isn't going to make some of them very happy.
I think that's the way if should be. The true test of the Next Gen will be when everybody figures it out....How the racing will be then....Until that time, start your laptops! I like MY chances with that little tuning shop out of Costa Mesa and Salisbury.

My bad. Thanks for the correction. I counted on their numbers.

I guess we’ll just have to wait for Larson to have a good season.
Haha, this is still a top 5 season, all time, imo.

I'm trashing on NBC, not you guys, or Larson.

Is there something wrong with Pockrass, like Parkinson's? His hands were shaking throughout that video with Larson.

He sounds nervous whenever he talks to a driver.

Always has. I'm not a fan of his tbh.

If there's something medical, then my apologies. But I think he just gets nervous when talking to drivers. His energy and comfort is totally different when talking to cameras, vlogging vs when talking to drivers.

Don't **** with the narrative. He is Jesus behind the wheel.

and to think
if no broken brake rotor
we would all be celebrating how awesome a driver Truex is

and how much of a scam the playoffs are cause the “best” driver didn’t win the championship AGAIN !!

Yep, that would have been cool.

Exactly why it shouldn’t come down to a single race. If the Chiefs and the Buccaneers went to the Super Bowl, Tom Brady can’t throw an interception to a defender from the Eagles. Tyreek hill can’t get tackled by a Chargers defender. It’s one team vs one team. If you want to do it that way, why not just put 4 cars out there for a 20 lap dash, Cars style.

Winter Stuart, FL. Otherwise could be anywhere

That is basically what NASCAR does. Only 4 cars actually race the final race for the championship.

I wonder which movie stars gave up their courtside seats so Kyle and Katelyn could watch the Lakers game. I bet it wasn't Jack Nicholson or Adam Sandler. :D
