New Nationwide cars...good or bad?
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..
