I just found out that Hendricks Motorsports plans to run the new Cup car in the 24 Hours (or "Heures" or something) of LeMans. That is SO cool. For one thing, the new cars can compete, particularly with all the new adjustability in them, as well as the fact that the general technology of a Cup car now is concurrent with the 21st century.
I got a kick out of fans' complaints about the new design. Evidently, some see it as a radical-creation. Yet it was approaching the point where the "Whomever-Paid-to Name It" Cup had more in common with vintage racing than modern motorsports.
But - hey - if you want to root for race technology of more typical NASCAR vintage, you can always follow for the Truck series, where I still say every truck should be carrying cargo.
