Of course, just as it relates to re-evaluating and upgrading the new car the cost overruns mean NASCAR isn’t in a real position to ask teams to spend even more money, so it’s easier to target parts you can just strip off or tack on.As you know, NASCAR is not impervious to the ravages of inflation and supply chain raw materials / finished product shortages.
It’s still far less expensive to put together and maintain 7 cars per charter than it was to run a fleet of 15 or 20 track-specific chassis / body combinations. Ross Chastain won at COTA and at Talladega with the same car. That’s what Next Gen is all about.
Also at the same time NASCAR is discussing a budget cap or luxury tax, fwiw.
