    8. Two races with the new package variations and few of my fears have been realized. I apologize to those with calibrated eyeballs but the reduction in horsepower / speed isn't visible to me over the tellyvishun set.

    Closest thing to a throwback race you can have in terms of no "true" cautions. Lots of good battles for positions and near last lap pass.

    5 not bad. Very happy that there wasn't much of a pack.


    I cannot get excited about basically the same show we got last spring here, minus 300 hp and the fact that getting around the track nowadays requires alot less finesse and flat-footing basically all day.


    I was at the race here in the fall. It was a better show.

    7. I’m adjusting to the new package, weird to me they don’t lift. The restarts have way more WHOA moments, and I like how the cars break apart after a few laps in the pack. Tire wear still matters still have to get educated about the handling it does seem clean air plays a role for those drivers stuck more in the back. Seems to be it still pays off to be in the front, I was wrong about these tracks being mini Daytona’s or Talladega. I’m going to wait some more races to decide how I feel about this package.

    7 Not as much drafting as there was in practice and qualifying. Restarts were fun and they had a great finish.

    First stage was bland with Harvick pulling away but it recovered nicely.

    8.5, continuing the trend of pit strategies and teammates side drafting, good stuff. Less 4 second leads this time as well, and no BS cautions.

    8 another great finish I like it.

    the people who are bitching on twitter and saying the package is not doing what they was told so it sucks are the people who wants daytona/talldega pack racing every week with a bunch of wrecks.

    Feild is strung out quickly, the close racing feels manufactured.

    8 Pretty good racing even without the cautions. Probably would have been even more exciting with a few cautions.

    3...and that's with bonus points for exciting restarts and no cautions. Last year's race was incredible with tire management being clearly visible, and tons of comers & goers. I didn't see that this race and it seemed like drivers couldn't push their cars to the limit due to reduced horsepower. I'm not a fan of this package and it will only get more boring once teams figure out how to offset the changes within a few weeks.

    6. Excitement on the restarts and in the final few laps, rest of it so-so. Drivers aren't on the edge and don't have to manage tires like they used to.
