The bumpers on the car before the Car of Tomorrow were the same way so I don't think it will be a problem for long. The drivers will be a able to figure something out pretty quickly.
I was just going on the info from the Sprint Unlimited race and some practice issues. They were talking about the front bumper being an issue. Watching the 150's now on the internet. No SpeedTV on my cable system.

JJ got the win, Danica led a lap & finished 8th. She had a fast car. Kenseth & Busch had issues w/ their Toyota's & they were fast. Big wreck to out Stewart, Edwards & others. The new cars seem like they are aero senitive & they can't pass.

^^ Yup. Or maybe it was just a boring winner (nothing against Johnson, he's just too good).

Well there was a lot of factors. Crashing was minimal but not surprising that there would be more in this race then really all the restrictor plate races last year. They raced in a single file the whole race all the way to half way of the last lap. All fox really focused on was Danica (who did a good job but cmon o and she can't leave the pits to save her life) the fords were barely seen all day until keselowski and biffle started making moves. The overhead camera was awesome...mmm the fact that dodge wasn't there was just lame...idk this wasn't as hype as they portrayed it to be.

Early on the Toyotas were strong then several key player blew their motors thus taking some of race ending drama with them.
I'm glad Patrick made a race out of things as alot of people figured she'd finish in the middle of the pack or simply crash but really she was a top 10 racer all day.

that race was pretty much dominated by chevy's. all the fords somehow ended up crashing into each other (if anyone didn't notice) I feel really bad for edwards. 5 wrecks that weren't even his fault all of speed weeks? and the fact that toyota's fastest were out of the gibbs camp but failed to finish just made it even more boring.

as for danica, she did great. and i'm not saying restrictor plate racing is easy, but it is restrictor plate racing. we'll see how she does on these shorter tracks. not doubting her skill, but we'll see. I think she might get a win this season. If it wasn't for her horrible burnouts out of pit lane then she would probably have a better chance of winning.
