That Kansas race was about the best advertisement possible for the 2019 package. It keeps the cars closer together (a stated goal) and creates intense action, especially on restarts. Last year's rules could make for wild restarts too, but that tends to linger longer this year. I personally don't like how the cars race around each other with the effects of high downforce. The way a slower leading car can trap a faster trailing car behind creates a version of "closer racing", but it's not my cup of tea. The clean air / dirty air effects are greatly increased by this package. That said, the result is much better at some tracks than others. This was the best non-short track race of the season so far. It's not pack racing and is actually still much better than what pack racing is.
