        Number placement is not to bad, but will definitely take some getting used too.

              I wonder how fast the pit stops will be? Especially when they come in on yellow and only need one can of fuel. I think it was Buddy Baker who said, years ago “if these pit stops get much faster it will simply be, here they come and there they go”.

              Cornfed I remember reading somewhere that they were going to be about the same. It takes the same amount of time to take the one lug off that it did to take off the 5 (a little over a second). If I remember correctly NASCAR is able to control the speed through how fast the pit gun takes it off or something like that.

                    I agree with him. The Ford looks Angry and like it's going to eat all the other cars up on track. Mostly, it's also not as generic as the Chevy and Toyotas IMO

                    Guess I just don't see it... the Camaro has the more aggressive lines..... but I guess that falls into the fans opinion. I can respect that.

                  Yeah gotta say the Ford looks the best. The chevy seems sorta chunky in the back... Either way glad to seem them testing and a few actual schemes on the cars.

                    An understatement would be I am not a fan of the driver of the 22, but that flat black Mustang is by far the best looking car at the test IMO!!
