Why NASCAR Is Getting Kinda Weird

Like every race series, NASCAR periodically updates the rules which define the cars. Unlike most race series, NASCAR's roots go back nearly 100 years, and so does some of the technology. But the 2022 update is huge: independent rear suspension, 6-speed sequential transaxles, 18" wheels with wider, lower profile tires, coil over suspension.

    Absolutely not. Nascar is doing the complete opposite from what they need to do. They need more HP and LESS downforce this car looks car but it's going to make for some awful racing

    It started getting weird a long time ago. Mike Helton screwed it up. Car of tomorrow, race for the chase, and so on... at the height of its popularity the dumbass changed everything, and guys like me who used to go to 3-4 events a year stopped liking the kinder, gentler, and more family oriented racing... 😷 cough.

    I always thought all the cars were different. What's the point of calling it a "Toyota" or "Chevy," or "Ford" if they're all just the same exact thing? I thought building the best car was part of the challenge. Now it seems even more lame...

    Winners of OMAZE (a for-profit company) are responsible for ANY & ALL taxes. OMAZE will issue the 'winner' a US 1099 form, so you have to report your prize and pay tax on it. The prize TAX could be in the tens-of-thousands'. Most poor people can't afford that high tax. And yes you have to pay the FULL tax amount up front before they give you the prize. Sorry there is NO option for a cash equivalent rewards. Some good charities NOW give you a prize and cash to cover your tax obligation but OMAZE is not one because they are a for-profit-company. Just saying.....

    A rose by any other name is still a rose. This phrase does NOT apply to NASCAR. There is every little if anything "stock" about these cars. The days of teams finding the speed have been diminished and now we are just watching rolling advertisements. This in combination with NASCAR's selective rule enforcement amount drivers puts it almost on a "professional" wrestling level. If you want to watch highly modified cars race, watch F1.

    Chris BananaPřed 13 dny

    did that guy brag about making all the cars the same and giving no team an advantage to good engineering and tweaking of the car? Why i quit watching nascar in in the 90s. The cars just got closer and closer alike, with less and less things the teams could change and tweak to give them an edge. I don't want to watch a pussy foot "fair" race when its about JUST the driver, i want to see what the TEAM can do.

    Wrong direction. The joy of "Stock Car" was that what you saw on TV was modified from what you bought at the dealership. They would do much better to have actual modified Mustangs, Camaros, Camarys (lols), and Challengers running.
