Can NASCAR solve its Next Gen problem in short lanes? It may be too late


Let’s throw it away and never talk about it again, okay?

Okay. Let’s try not to be also dramatic here. Not every race is going to be a home run (good baseball season!), And to be fair there have not been very many (if any) strikeouts this season.

But when Dale Earnhardt Jr. tweets a picture out of a container immediately after the race … yes, that can be a problem.

“I do not think the race was bad, but it was certainly harder to pass,” said an (overly) optimistic Joey Logano. “If you’re directly behind them, it’s no secret that this car is worse in dirty air. You could not move up the racetrack and hedge over or do anything to try to pass them. You really just stalled. . ”

Chase Elliott (9) and William Byron all led except for six innings in Martinsville.

Logano finished in second place after race winner William Byron, who along with Chase Elliott together led 397 of the 403 laps.

Let me say it again … the two Hendrick drivers led all but six laps Saturday night in Martinsville.

There were only two “natural” warnings (NASCAR was also quick with the trigger on them), five “lead shifts” (even though there were no real passes to the lead), and a whole lot … well, nothing.
