New Nationwide cars...good or bad?

http://www.nascar.com/2009/news/head...ate/index.html

Sounds like they really want to separate the Sprint and Nationwide cars in the way it both looks and drives even further.

I would love seeing the Mustang in NASCAR, but I don't like the idea of increasing the distance between the two series. Right now it is viewed as a hierarchy. For the national series it goes from the truck series to Nationwide to Sprint. Making the cars increasingly different, I'm sure, would make that transition from Nationwide to Sprint that every driver hopes to achieve very difficult. Not to mention the difficult transition the double-duty drivers make every week.

What is your take?

They are three different racing series, with graduating costs.. They are not a farm series.. Of course the drivers in the lower series want to "graduate" from a quarter mil a year, to ten mil a year, but the lower series are not a prerequisite.. A driver can go straight to Cup, or stay in Nationwide for his whole career.. Some have actually turned down Cup rides to do that.. They run most of the same week ends, with many of the same drivers.. That improves all of the series by attracting fans, and sponsors.. How many Nationwide only race week ends have you been to??
I think the car is very sharp looking, and will be a threat to the Cup cars, for popularity, but I expect they will both drive very similar to each other.. Goodyear isn't going to want to supply tires for two radically different cars, on the same track..

I think it would be kinda cool. It would really show who the better drivers are when the cup contenders trying to compete in the nationwide series have to be adapt to driving two styles of cars. It's already that way now and I can see a seperation of driving talent because of that, and it would further seperate the talent.

There stupid! Not that many people watch Nationwide races anyway, now less people will watch when it becomes just like cup. Boring, green flag the whole race ( except for NASCAR's ridiculous debris cautions ) and there would be no passing. NASCAR stop ruining the sport!

It might actually push the two closer, because they want this car to be safer, like a COT. Good, it changes things up and mustangs are cooler than fusions.
