    I was wondering the same thing about Kyle during the race, they didn’t do a good job of covering that at all, I had to look at Twitter during the race as well. I guess he was locked into the next round of the playoffs so he didn’t matter

    @Dotini agree about the spectacle but imagine how much better it would be if it wasn’t a cutoff race in the playoffs. Everyone was so concerned about points and getting a good finish all day, it seemed like people were constantly just letting people go past. It’d be really crazy if it was just a normal race with nothing to lose and everything trying their hardest to win.

    Man the hate Bubba is getting for the water incident on social media is simultaneously hilarious and really depressing.

    Does that sounds like a good argument for two Roval races in the season?

    I'm surprised it took this long for them to do this.

    At least now all those console NASCAR games that had the drivers names instead of the beer sponsors look more realistic

    It appears Logano broke an axle during the warm up laps before the green flag even fell. I’m no Logano fan but that sucks for him.

    Looks like the axle cap came off and the axle just fell out. Oof.

    The Gen7 car, or as it's now being called, "Next Gen", is scheduled to have its first on track test today and tomorrow at Richmond Raceway. Austin Dillon will be shaking down the car.
    Test won't be open to the media or the public.

    It’s going to have a generic body on it which won’t be indicative of what it actually looks like.

    I imagine it will have the bigger wheels on it though

    EDIT: Austin Dillon posted video of it on his Instagram

    Here is our first look at the Next Gen car.



    Edit: It has a diffuser!


    Edit: Also...


    Edit: Look at the new Splitter. Has a raised section in the middle instead of just flat. Similar to what was on the X-3 test car from a few years back.

    Edit: Exhaust exit on left side. Possibly on right side as well.

    Edit: Side skirts curve in behind the front tire.

    Edit: Comparison of the rear of the car to the current car. Notice the length of the rear quarter panel and deck lid.

    Not really a bad thing.
    I like what I see. Still praying the solid rear axle is finally gone. Same with asymmetrical body mods.

    If I can't stick my size 12 foot under the front end without scratching the tops of my shoes, this car is still going to drive like :censored: in traffic.

    if you think it's sitting low now, just wait until there is 185mph of air pushing down on the nose.

    Remove the splitter and raise the minimum ride height. Again, too aero dependent.

    5 lug setup needs to go. Sorry Not Sorry.
    Even with a generic body, I really like what I see here.
    I can't wait to see the Goodyear lettering return on those tires. I'm getting Formula Drift/IMSA/Goodyear LMP tire vibe from them.

    Porsche 911 GTLM will be on track sometime before the race. So for the one’s who record races, you might want to record Pre-race. Source is from commentary of the Road Atlanta race. I wish I was down there to see it turn left and bust my ear drums.

    Hell no! Cars being stopped on pit road due to rain.
