MIS president looking forward to another big year
“I have a deal with him, that when he wins a Cup race, he can design his own trophy, because he wants these really huge, giant trophies like they used to give in NASCAR,” Curtis said. “I think he’s going to win one of our two races this year.”
Curtis was in Detroit on Tuesday, where top NASCAR officials took part in a panel discussion on the new Gen-6 race car, which is making its debut this year. The Sprint Cup season begins at Daytona later this month.
Keselowski’s series championship gave Michigan racing officials another chance to brag.
The new cars will include driver names and manufacturer badges on the windshields.
“We were clear at the outset _ and time could change this _ but we weren’t going to adjust the schedule to fit the Chase,” Helton said. “The Chase was an element we added at the last 10 races of the year, and when we did that, there weren’t any road courses in that part of our season. I’m not sitting here and saying that will never change, but there’s nothing any time soon.”
