Watching the Daytona Danica Show and right after Bowyer gets wrecked, he could hardly keep from smiling - "We were having so much fun out there".

lol I love seeing those guys have fun, and to see them executing this method that has never been done before. In the old plate races, sum1 would often attempt a pass and have no help, and get shuffled back. If you're known for being fast, u got help more often than those who didnt have that reputation as an advantage. I HATED that. At least this way they have communication to find sum1 to run thru the pack with.. for now.

Watching Jeff Gordon /Kasey Kahne incident, all I could think was, what if they knew how to react to that? Jeff Gordon could say, "leave some space, Im stealing one" and go push Kasey up the middle. There's not a lot Kasey can do to prevent it, lol. That would be the coolest thing I ever seen if he'd have dun it lol Then Martin ride up behind, Jeff drags brake, Kasey becomes disconnected, they switch lanes and bail on him lol
effectively interrupting that team's momentum in a HUGE way.

Oh well, back to the Danica show =))

Yes, but how are they going to do it? They could put a plate in the air intake or reduce the size of the injectors. One reduces airflow much like the current system and the other reduces fuel which will reduce horsepower but allow more throttle response.

It is interesting, because the system is still going to need to be computer controlled to some degree. More systems means more opportunities to cheat the system.

Good point since they've never allowed computers under the hood.

Its not entertaining at all unless those boxes are cartwheeling and flying into the infield. Oh, and it would be a bonus if the entire pits just blew up like they used to in the 80's during those menthanol CART races. Other than that, its all round and round and round...

Nothing better then seeing on of those POS COTs reduced to scrap metal. Even the name Car of Tomorrow is laughable, those shitboxes have set back NASCAR 50 years.
