Every time NASCAR changes the rules and changes car platforms, race teams and fans alike lose their minds. And I get it. The fans don’t like it when looks change and the racers don’t like it when they start losing control. But what about the racing? Remember, NASCAR is all about the entertainment and they want good close racing that doesn’t result in 20 car pileups at every super speedway, and cars that might be slower but that can be driven around on the race track so that the racing is more action packed and fun. In truth, the drivers also want cars that respond to the skinny pedal on the right and the steering wheel in front of them. Sure, they want to go fast, but they want cars they can drive.
But these new Next Gen cars are a totally different animal. There are all kinds of folks saying that these cars are so different that they will change the foundation of what NASCAR racing is. What do you think?
Watch the video below and you’ll get a bunch of the answers, opinions, and more. Check it out.
