Same here, I have very little interest in NASCAR, but I'm a huge fan of dirt cars. (probably because my dad's house is like 5 minutes away from the local dirt track lol)
This race I might actually watch

I'm a little surprised that this is going to happen.It's a good idea but the teams now have to construct a special truck to run only at this one track.That costs money and the teams frequently complain about expenses like this one.Most truck series teams are small and low budget so it creates a financial burden on them.
Supposedly the only change is removing the splitter.

Are these things basically the same as regular stock cars, but just with truck looking bodies instead of car looking bodies?
For those wondering, yes they are basically a Sprint Cup chassis with truck body panels and a reduced HP engine. The COT was designed with features from the truck series, such as moving the driver inboard a little and making the greenhouse a little taller. It should be an interesting show for sure!
One thing I've noticed during truck races is that they almost never adjust the wedge or sway bar during a race. I don't know if it's not allowed or difficult to do? Their races are much shorter generally so they don't pit as often, another cost saving measure.
