Gen-6 car passes first real test
Question of the Day
AVONDALE, ARIZ. (AP) - The season-opening Daytona 500 wasn’t really a good gauge for NASCAR’s new Gen-6 car because it’s a restrictor-plate race.
Phoenix was the first true test of the new car and most of the reviews were good.
“It will change, but I think the first race it was pretty sporty so far,” said Tony Stewart, who finished eighth.
The main complaint about the new cars was their passing ability.
Most of the passing during the Phoenix race was done in the pits and many of the cars at the back of the pack had a hard time moving forward.
“For the first race it was great,” said Matt Kenseth, who finished seventh in Sunday’s race. “I think everybody loves these cars. The goal is always to get them easier to pass and they’ve got a ton of downforce right now. I’m sure NASCAR is going to adjust as they go and try to make it a little bit easier for the rear cars to catch somebody.”
