They might as well just go to a common body and just brand it by power plant.

I believe that is what Brian France would love to do anyway. Then Nascar could control it all pretty much as they would probably end up being the seller of the body.

They just need to throw in the towel and go to a sedan class of racing. Then at least they would be racing REAL production cars!

I thought the COT was a better looking race car than the one it replaced, especially when the spoiler came back and the original splitter was replaced.  And this car is in turn much better looking than the COT.  Excited to finally see some racing again - even though Daytona and plate racing is awful to watch.

I'm done with NASCAR. I stopped liking the cars back about 1988 when they all started looking like 200mph eggs. :(

It's a start. I don't care for any of current cars as a street car, but at least you can tell what brand car is what now just from looking at it. I think that was one of the major complaints from the manufacturer's with the COT...same car for everyone with only stickers and an engine to make them different. There was no brand recognition. Although, after watching practice runs and speeds/times today, I can hear Ford and Toyota complaining already that Chevy has some sort of aero advantage and NASCAR needs to do something to equal the cars. Sounds like something from the past all over again. :rolleyes:

The biggest problem is that the best looking Gen 6 car isn't even on the track.......

Don't you mean Charger or Dart graphics? Because there's not going to be any actual Charger or Dart there.

As an old fart I loved stock cars. I don't care for Nascar at all. They all look like butter dishes to. This of coarse is just one guys opinion.

I thought the COT & The previous car Were Generic bodies branded by engine!!!

They sure did NOT look like what they called them.

At least the few I have seen this month Almost Look like what they claim they are.

They Stopped being "Stock" cars Long ago!!!!

 

I gave up on Francecar right after we lost Alan Kulwicki and France started all those design rules!!

One rumor I've heard and read is that around the garage Richard Childress Racing RCR will be the new Dodge team.  He says he's heard nothing but I've read it a couple of times on different forums...Would be nice.  He's been with GM forever but would be a fresh start. He is #3 on GMs pecking order...Hendrick/Stewart Haas/RCR....Why not with a couple of new stars coming up...His grandsons....Sure hope so...

Can't really see RCR leaving Chevrolet, they've had far too much success with them over the years. As far as pecking order, I would count Hendrick and S/H as one team, as they are sharing pretty much everything, with RCR in second.

One thing I could see happening (and this was mentioned on some of the sites) is Ganassi going to Dodge, considering that the roots of that team (Evernham) is where Dodge started when they came back to Nascar.

Would that be if Dodge decides not to pull out of NASCAR afterall?

I don't know where you think any kind of connection between Ganassi and Evernham ever existed. Richard Petty Motorsports was what Evernham Racing merged with. Ganassi was one of several teams that did sign on with Dodge when they returned to Nascar in 2001. Dodge said last year when Penske signed with Ford that they wanted a top tier team to sign up, Ganassi is FAR from a top tier team. If Ganassi was the best they could do they would be better off leaving Nascar completely as they already have.

Ganassi is DEI not Everingham. The is why they went "Chevy" Cars Number 42 & "1"

And yes. RPMS is only Gillette/Everingham--Robert Yate Racing with Richard's name on it.

Yates is why The Everingham team changed to "Ford" labels.
