Yeah, where is the so called "pack racing" or drafting from the new rules package? At Atlanta they blamed it on the slick track that hasn't been repaved in 20 years. At Vegas they had it during one qualifying session (kind of) but I didn't see it in the race today. You didn't see it in the experiment in Charlotte last year and you won't see it again as the track temperatures increase.

Looks to me like all they did was plant the back end of the car with the big spoiler and the power reduction from the restrictor plate. So now all the cars are tight because the front downforce doesn't match the rear. And the same teams that were running the best last year are the same ones running the best now.

And those poor Hendrick Chevys are still running 15th-20th. RCR Chevys were good in qualifying but couldn't race.

Ellott can't catch a break, I have the races on in the background but rarely sit and watch.

He doesn't need a break, he needs a better car, just as his teammates do.

I couldn't agree with you more on that! If it was a couple of Chevy teams having trouble running with the furds and yotas you could say they just haven't caught up but when none of the Chevy teams can hang with them, well there's a for sure disparity.

One of the few times I have watched in recent years and Kyle put on a show. Wow, him at speed in traffic after the penalty. I wonder if his spotter was able to keep up with some of his moves.
