I love the new cars, so much better then the COT, they look at more like their production counter parts , I think this is a step in the right direction to getting NASCAR back to what it once was, but there is still a very long road to go, next step, get rid of Brian France
To start out, Dodge has not confirmed they are going to return in 2014, Ralph Gilles (head of SRT) said he would like to return in 2014, but it all depends on many things
There will be a Dodge running in the Nationwide series at Daytona, and yes, teams can still run the Dodge Challenger in the Nationwide series for the next few years, but of course, no support from Dodge.
On the Gen6 car, for the few people that that like NASCAR on this forum that have replied, lets not judge the new car off of the racing at Daytona, how the new car races , and if its going to make the racing better will come all the other tracks.
Ford, Chevy, Toytoa are providing pieces of the cars, and I believe those stamped pieces of the body are the same as the street cars, yes, just like Harry Hogg said, there aint nothin stock about a stock car.
Everenham and Gillette now have nothing to do with RPR...There are two other owners which I cannot remember their names with Richard Petty there as
a NAME per say. Ray is now working with Hendrick Motorsports again and Gillette is gone. Thanks for that...
Andy Murstein, Doug Bergeron are the other owners of RPM(Richard Petty Motorsports)
Now that I watched the race(replied before I watched it), there is something yall's have to keep in mind about the race, first off, this is the first race with this car, and the big thing is this, race teams dont have that many of the Gen6 car built yet, so that is a big factor, plus, this is just a exhibition race, no point in going out and racing and wrecking cars when there is already a shortage of races cars to begin with.
I believe the drivers were somewhat sandbagging to a point.
The teams have to wait on the manufacturers to get body parts, and they are having a hard time producing the parts fast enough for the teams to build the cars.
And my last point, its not going to be a great race when you only have twelve cars on the track.
I'm done with NASCAR. I stopped liking the cars back about 1988 when they all started looking like 200mph eggs.
Dont take this as anything other then a question, So you stopped liking NASCAR because the cars stopped being bricks?, the street cars stopped being bricks as well, I am betting you dont like the styling of new cars(production cars) either?
