Conspiracy theorists have no place in motorsports IMO.
Has NASCAR tested the new Gen 7 Cup car on dirt yet? Dirt cars rely on big, bulky tire for added grip in addition to the suspension. I have a feeling this Bristol Cup race could become an engineering nightmare in 2022.
Yeah, it still feels very strongly of a PR move that's taking advantage of a transitional year. If/when it ends up being a clown show, then they'll use that as the reason why it's dropped, otherwise they'll say it's a cost-saving measure so the teams don't have to build a whole car specifically for that one race.I don't think they have, which I guess gives credence to the theory it's just a one-and-done deal as a way for NASCAR to run the cars on dirt one last time while they are still somewhat suited for it.
The truck schedule has been released, they will race on dirt twice as they will be at Bristol with the Cup series as well as Knoxville which replaces Eldora.
Race day at Texas is enjoyable, so even if it's just a one-time thing I'd recommend trying it.They’re going to come to Pocono. Depending on the COVID situation I may go to the race. My NASCAR knowledge is below zero but would like to experience it at least once.
While not exactly NASCAR related, ARCA released their schedule and both Iowa and Milwaukee are on it! It's nice to see neither track is completely dead.
News tidbits for 2021:
AJ Allmendinger will drive full-time for Kaulig in the Xfinity series. Big fish in a small pond?
Driver's names will be on the windshields in the Cup series.
I'm wondering how this will affect his IMSA broadcasting duties? Because there surely will be some weekends where IMSA and Xfinity are running at the same time. I thought he did a pretty good job broadcasting for IMSA.
