Number4 should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid

I read this on
Composite bodies to debut...

What the heck?

I like the big tall spoilers and steel cars,but am thinking this will go with a move to smaller engines, maybe stock based and noise limits and lighter cars

After all those new ford Mustangs and dodge challengers sound solo good on the street
Heck even Toyota tundra v8s sound good.

There is not a single part on a Cup, Xfinity, or Truck that is "stock" at the moment. Instead of teams spending hours forming sheet metal into a body that have to fit strict templates, they will be able to unclip and refit a moulded panel in next to no time.
They run tapered spacer air restrictors at all tracks in Cup, and plates at the superspeedways, so new engine rules make sense.
NASCAR rules moving out of the 50's and into the 90's would at least be a positive step
