    You could actually see under those cars a little bit, and suspension travel was a thing back then.

    It sounds like it will be 'more difficult' in that you'll be running in traffic more and will need to finesse your way through the field more in terms of using the draft and not losing momentum with a bogged-down engine too much. Not nearly as difficult in terms of driving the car or racing the track though. Goodyear even said they can't use the softer tire philosophy NASCAR thought they would use because mid-corner speeds and tire temps are the same because they have more downforce to compensate for the lower power. The cars are power-limited, not mechanical grip-limited so it didn't make sense for Goodyear to develop a softer tire.

    So I want to clarify the rules this year.....A caller on NASCAR Radio asked a question which Claire B. Lang couldn't answer because it was about NASCAR and not some "Chase tries hard, Joey is so determined, or Austin Dillon is on kill" stupid narrative. The caller said that Danny Lawrence (if you don't know who he is ignore this post) said that the cars would run a restrictor plate under the spacer for plate tracks after Daytona (after the 500 because we don't want to waste inventory---for the biggest race of the year---I digress). So, post 500, does anybody know what the hell the caller is talking about. I thought that after the 500, they would be running the All Star stuff without the plate, but with the spacer.....Just found this. Caller must be full of crap....

    Yeah Idk what that guy's talking about, it'll be the spacer plus the other 2019 aero bits which, in theory, will keep the speeds the same at Daytona and Talladega but they'll just race differently. Those cars that suddenly spin by themselves which you've seen at Daytona (especially) and Talladega the past few years will probably be much more stable.

    At a Goodyear tire test in Fontana, cars driven by Truex, Logano and Suárez just did a run together before lunch. The drivers seemed to hold it wide open for several laps before tires started to fall off — and they ran very close together for almost the whole run. #newpackage

    3 wide down the straight.

    and it was Suarez first into turn one, looked like he over cooked a bit and Joey and Truex looked like they were going to pounce.

    Wide open around a track that usually requires a good bit of turning to the right. 'Greatest drivers in the world' in freeway traffic. Driving side by side does not equate to GoOd rAcInG.

    Yup, hybrid plate track wide open. I am at least impressed at the engine noise they're still cranking out.

    Any comments from the drivers after yesterday?

    So a guy with two years experience (and no previous time with this car or crew chief) can hang with the two most recent Cup champions? I don't see this as a good thing; just me, I guess.

    That might change when there is 33 more cars running with them.
    Does anyone know what spoiler squares had? :D

    somebody please save the cars, they were choking and coughing. Nascar needs something like the ASPCA. Some of us older fans will be having heart attacks with three wide racing, please Nascar stop it. :D

    I believe at Atlanta they aren't using the ducts. Pocono, Homestead and Darlington also.

    I think the dress rehearsal at Las Vegas will be pretty telling at the end of the month. 14 drivers involved with Kurt, Kyle, Kez, Clint, Jimmie, Preece and Matt D. Alot of the gang will be there.

    I'm trying to stay optimistic. I just want the sport to move in the right direction and it seemed like last year it was. Now, it restarts over with this new package. The sport needs good news and positivity, I hope this package can be the answer.

    Can we be sure to include what package and engine are being used each week in the pre-race threads? Very important. I'm sure the TV networks will have to make a segment each week to let us know too. Air duct function will be gone over 342,873,659 times.
