Leaving it up do the drivers is certainly more exciting than automated cars.
Or they could have a set speed limit on pit road and have a little speedometer in the cars.
I'm not one much for automation of driving usually, but I have to say this would be much better. It can ruin a good race because someone went 2mph too fast in the pits and had to go back in the pack because of a penalty.
Jump to 4:36 Interesting news about the 2013 Chevy Cup car.
An article that talks about the cup car in a little more detail
Thanks to FastLaneDaily and AutoBlog.com.
I posted that Autoblog article last week.
Their cars passed inspection at the end of the day without any controversy. FIVE-TIME's team has been caught multiple times. So it's apples and oranges.
"It has looked like a block of crap for several years now" True the Impala should have been redesigned by now imo.
What team got caught five times?
1) USE NAMES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!x1,000,0000^9
2) There wasn't any controversy because it seems people only give a damn when it's something they can use against Danica or Jimmie.
3) Just because they weren't caught doesn't mean they aren't doing any rule breaking.
I guess so...but then again his team has been caught several times, which causes Nascar to watch their team more closely. I know it sounds noobish but it's the truth.
You're also comparing old rules to new rules. Like you said, Apples to Oranges.
The new templates are way harder to get around, whereas in the past, they were pretty limited in what they actually measured. Increased restrictions, increased amounts of infractions. Even further on the same point, like you said, NASCAR is watching them closer than many other teams, so why wouldn't you expect them to get caught more often? But like I said, according to the rules written, the C-Pillar that was in question, passed the 'template' inspection. It was an infraction outside of the template that raised concern. Not black and white, clearly a grey area.
Johnson's number 48 will be yellow this weekend, literally. I actually prefer it this color.
EDIT: Kasey's 5 is yellow too.
so jimmie will win at fontana
its his race
lol we'll just have to wait and see.
80% chance of rain tomorrow. Guess that means no afternoon nap.
Kyles on the move today. Started 43rd, 19th by lap 4. Currently leading with 26 laps left, battling with BK and Joey Logano
Looks like a cup driver is finally going to win a Nationwide race.
Can they race at night then?
Based on the forecasts, the rain's staying around into the evening.
The track has lights but the forecast isn't promising.
Well thats unfortunate!
They could run on Monday if they have to. The next race is at Martinsville so the schedule isn't as tight as it was after Daytona.
Yall sure it's gonna rain? Seems clear over there...
Still the opposite side of the country.
Pretty sure all the teams have their Martinsville cars in their shops ready to go at a moment's notice. Plus, it's only a couple hours drive from Charlotte to Martinsville.
Definitely not a tight schedule like it was from Daytona to Phoenix.
We'll be racing on Monday.
Thanks for the forecasts guys! Guess I shouldn't count on this one happening tonight then
I live about a half hour from the track doesn't seem like it'll rain, but who knows.
