The package did wonders for the 1.5's proved that the future 550HP motors will work, and for the first shot out of the box did pretty well overall. I'm pretty sure the car will get some small tweaks before next year as Nascar continues to evolve.
Respectfully disagree with the bolded. Chicagoland was one of the most entertaining races last year, Larson ran down KB for over 50 laps and they finished sideways. Pocono during Blaney's run to his first win wasn't boring either.
George Costanza theory in effect here. Do the opposite of whatever Mikey says.
He never won a Cup race in which HP wasn't restricted well below 500 HP. Of course he does.
I didn't hate the 550 package on the 1.5s myself, but Pocono/Fontana/Michigan/IMS should be a high horsepower, low downforce show.
They should run low downforce and 900hp at every track shorter than 1.5 miles and low downforce and a medium-sized spacer (750 hp) at every track larger than 1.5 miles + Homestead.
Daytona and Talladega were great with the package (logically, as they had more horsepower than they used to have there). The only other tracks were the package worked were some of the D-shaped 1.5 milers.
I personally would like to see 900 hp and low downforce for all the tracks, but that's not realistic.
Admitting that something must be done for the short tracks was a first step into admitting that NASCAR has badly screwed up with this package. Once again, they were trying to fix a problem that wasn't there.
Honestly, once the teams figured out the new package, it was a pretty boring season. The cars are too planted & too slow. The big spoiler still punches a hole in the air that makes it impossible for anyone to close in on the leader other than at a double file restart.
Ah the good ol' days when the backend would step out on the regular
