The bodies of the Gen 7 car are said to be be more similar to the cars on the showroom floor and the front spliters are gone.    The cars will be higher as well.

Everything I've seen estimates 20k.

They seemed to be appropriately spaced, but the masks were required everywhere BUT your seats.

I mean, isn't that where people are going to be screaming and spitting all over?

Good little time waster. I've enjoyed the races since they've returned even though it's been the Harvick show.

agreed. Harvick is leading the points by ALOT. The chase will be worth it this year.
I'm pretty much done with this current package. intermediate tracks are not my cup of tea, except for the restarts.

I've enjoyed it as well. Kind of think I'm really starting to like Tyler Reddick.

Also, the driver lineup will be interesting next year.

I think Elliot is my driver now. Don't mind Blaney tho and of course whomever drives the #24.

I'm weirdly loyal to Chevy, which has been slim pickin' since SHR moved and now w/ Larson out. Have never been able to get on the Chase bandwagon.

Blaney would without a doubt be my favorite if he drove a Chevy (or honestly, anything other than Ford/Penske)

Still burned by picking Kyle Larson as my guy, but I guess I'm on the Hamlin/Blaney/Bubba train.

These intermediate tracks seem to have a lot of GWC finishes.

Hendrick will be a fun follow over the next few weeks. (I personally don’t think Byron has IT, but he’s in that seat for 1 or 2 more years)

I think I’d get Gragson to fill JJ’s spot, but Bubba could be a really good fit as well.

Have to imagine it was Larson’s to lose, and well, he damn sure lost it.

Rumor mill has been fun lately, and the race Saturday night should be pretty good.

Looking forward to the next couple weeks of announcements and races (Darlington is one of my favorite weekends).

All it takes is one idiot to ruin a lot of cars at Daytona.

Sucks for Jimmie, but would be cool to see him win one of the last 10. More so than just making the playoffs and being eliminated first round.

And on another note, Kyle Larson is the best race car driving talent on the planet.

You missed nothing, I've always liked Jimmy but never loved him, but I was cheering my ass off for him to get into the playoff. At the time of that wreck Bubba was 1st and Jimmy was 5th, they were both going to make it.

Good to see 24 in VL.

Gotta figure out a way to rid the sport of plate racing.

The new car is supposed to lean more towards "run what ya brung", so we'll see.

Also the new car is supposed to have wider tires and more down force. two lacking components that brought about the need for plates, on top of the engines making nearly 800HP, which isn't the case now or on the new car.

Car is also supposed to reduce the side air turbulence and driver is moved towards the center for even greater safety.

Guess I'll go for Bowyer. Kind of thinking it's his last year, would be a cool story for a Kansan.

Yeah, it's just hard for me to find someone to root for. Jimmie would've been it if he was more competitive.

If Kurt winning pisses off Kyle, I'd be good w/ that.

Dillon, Bowman, Bowyer and Blaney (his family) have some dirt backgrounds.. so I'd be good with any of them, even though Dillon, Bowyer Bowman have basically no chance
