2017 NASCAR Tech changes rlr

The 2017 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season kicks off Saturday night at Daytona International Speedway with the Advance Auto Parts Clash (8 p.m. ET, FS1) , a 75-lap exhibition race that does not pay points.

Has a checkered past.

Stand on it....brakes only slow yoou down.

Have mixed feelings on new rules.(they will change with each race).
if you have body damage,you have 5 mins. from time entering pit road,to pit stall and return to race,guy in last pit is screwed time wise. still reading
rules and trying to figure out.Agree with some of other rules,Will see Sunday
at the 500,how it goes. :P

In a way, I like some of the rules, if a car as too much damage it shouldn't be allowed back out as many times these cars just create more cautions.....

Another rule that is a step in the right direction, is limiting Cup driver appearances in the Xfinity and truck series... Personally I don't think they should be allowed in any of the lower tier races. I seem to remember not all that many years, one rarely saw a Cup driver in the then Busch Series, except for Daytona....It is also why Xfinity needs to return to the smaller tracke and not be a companion race to the Cup at the same track on the same weekend, but, I have a feeling that is not entirely NASCAR's decision.....The TV crowd claims it costs too much money to have crews and two different tracks on the same weekend......one of the major reasons the Xfinity series was pulled from IRP (or whatever the track is called these days) and moved to IMS....

Another way to keep Cup drivers out of the truck and Xfinity series is that if a cup driver is in the car on any weekend, that car owner does not receive points either!

Rant over.....
