Is that a TA2 just without a rear wing? Never seen one with a spoiler like that.

It sort of is, but isn't.

It's a Fury Model R, a track day car. The company that makes it -Fury Race Cars- builds asphalt Modifieds and Late Models. It is like a TA2 car in that it is a tube frame chassis meant for road courses, powered by a big V8. But it's not built on an approved TA2 chassis(sofar as I can tell it's a version of Fury's Late Model chassis built specifically for road racing instead of ovals), and the LS3 engine it uses is not the same spec as the LS3 in a TA2 car(it also uses a GM LS3 even if you get the Mustang bodywork, whereas a TA2 Mustang will have a Ford-derived engine).

I imagine it drives very similarly to how a TA2 car would if you replaced the wing with a spoiler, though.

Back to a traditional points scoring system for me. Cannot believe Jeff Gordon and Carl Edwards were robbed of titles over the years. Particularly Edwards in 2008, that Roush Fenway Ford was a missile.

Yeah, absolutely. The current system to me makes a mockery of the championship. Nothing personal against Joey Logano but on merit/ race wins/ points scored it should have been Busch, Harvick or Truex being crowned champion last year. As it turned out it came down to who amongst those four had a good run at Miami, nothing more than that.

belt driven has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!

I'll drink to THAT! Nascar sez champions would have been the same under the old scoring. I think not. A hothead fast driver like Harvick would drive the last 10 races a lot different with the almost 300 point cushion he had one year. He could have finished last in one race, 10th or 15th in another and still lead points.

Someone mentioned not knowing much about newer drivers. Does anyone think that UFC, MMA, or any TV wrestling going all the way back to the '50's would exist if the players hadn't been allowed to talk smack at each other? A new driver mouths off about another; Nascar fines them $25000 for "conduct detrimental to the sport." Equine Fecal Matter! It may be detrimental to a bunch of Daytona bean counters' idea of "clean, family entertainment" to pitch to sponsors, but fans love it. The fans are leaving because they don't know the drivers; and sponsors are drying up as the fanbase does.

One driver I have doubts about is Eric Jones. He spun 7 times at 'Dega last year...by himself.
