I'm torn about the new car, can't see enough to decide if I like them.

I like them. I also like the fact that the new car is symmetrical and that it will eliminate the "crabbing" when driving in a straight line, which has always looked silly to me.

It's definitely better than the old car but being hit in the head with a 12 oz hammer is better than a sledge but neither is good.

I like the smaller "windows" and shorter rear overhang.

Not gonna lie, the cars from the early 00's are my faves by a country mile, the Chevy in particular and especially so the DEI schemes from the time.

I think the new car is better than the old, and both are way better than the car of tomorrow crap from a decade or so ago.

This weekend could be entertaining, Cup and Busch, and Trucks, at COTA with Super Trofeo. Interesting to see how much faster the Lamborghinis will be than Cup as the undercard

Yes, the rain tires are ready to go and on site. White sidewalls with 5 sets for Cup 3 for practice, 5 total for Busch and 4 in race, Trucks 4 sets with 3 in race. 40% rain Friday, 50% Sat and 40% Sunday so there's a chance.



And just for the fun of it trackside, Lamborghini practice starts at 7 am Saturday morning

Watcha talking about. Super Trefeo is the main event :-) NASCAR Cup is also a single make series too under fake stying decals.

If the Trucks race is a preview of Cup don't waste your time. No one is staying within an area code of the track at multiple corners, and they can't drive for sh

NASCAR in the rain is like watching other motorsports racing in the rain in the 90's & 00's. Formula 1, for example, is so extremely nannyfied in the rain these days. This Cup race is like the 2003 F1 race at Interlagos.

I just can't stand the crying from some drivers. I used to like Harvick but damn man, really? Admit you just can't drive in the rain instead of pretending it's all the series and the cars. From Racer: “We don’t have any business being out in the rain, period,” said Harvick. “All I can say is this is the worst decision that we’ve ever made in our sport that I’ve been a part of, and I’ve never felt more unsafe in my whole racing career, period.”

I just wish NASCAR believed in track limits at all, watching them drive off track to downtown Austin to make the corner makes them look pathetic.

Wow, talk about a close call between the Busch brothers!

I'm guessing we'll see a caution in a few mins either for another big wreck or for the rain. It's raining quite hard now and the backstretch seems rather sketchy.

Edit - and as I type the above, the caution flag flies.

I hate Kurt Busch but that was some hella rain driving and keeping the yellow from coming out. Kept it moving through the gravel, spun in the grass and back out along the grass edge of the gravel to return to the track. Well done sir, well done

Well that should end it, BTW Nascar that isn't a lot of standing water, you just have junk rains compared to Michelin. Guys seem to be driving as deep in the corner as the dry at times and then miss the corner.

Let's see how many wreck or slide off with hydroplaning at 25 in the rain
