Since NASCAR is mandating car shapes now anyway....

....wouldn't it be cool each year for Darlington if they mandated a certain year/car body that everyone had to run, instead of just the throwback paint schemes.

How about everyone running a Superbird body? Or an old Lumina, Monte Carlo, or Thunderbird?

It would be cool looking, but a one off car would cost a bundle....

Eh. Maybe. We're essentially just talking body.

How many cars do you think an average team has now?

Sorry, no idea what you're talking about "with the claw".

NASCAR mandates the body shape now. I still don't see how a second body type makes that much $ difference. They rebuild the bodies anyway after the season, if not during.

Smaller teams are going to be disadvantaged no matter what. It's the nature of being a smaller team.

You know as well as I do you can't beat cubic dollars if it's an unlimited cubic.

I believe the claw is the template check when they go thru inspections.

Oh, that.

Doesn't seem that big of a deal to make a new template.

Welp.... watched the truck race, was pulling for Cindrick and he won, but once again , same as last year it came down to a dump to win it....don't like that much... but if NASCAR allows it so be it I guess you'll see it some more....
