The National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing (NASCAR) is an auto car race operating company which is well known for its stock-car races. It includes three famous race series, NASCAR Monster Energy, NASCAR Xfinity series and the NASCAR Truck series. The NASCAR’s largest national racing series with the 61st running of the Daytona 500, are just around the corner and the crowd is already roaring. The season brings along a lot of excitement and stories but the NASCAR 2019 series has some extra buzz around it. We have enlisted all the reasons to be excited for NASCAR 2019.
- The Ford Mustang
This year, the NASCAR series will be including the all-new Ford Mustang opposing the Fusion which has previously taken part in the races. There is nothing more exciting than the new cars being tested in famous races, especially if these cars will providing high-level performances.
- Women making their way in racing
Even though Danica Patrick has retired but yet again in the NASCAR 2019, the amazingly talented Haile Deegan will be joining in along with Natalie Decker. Haile is a 17-year-old girl who has already won the rookie of the year as a full-time driver. Natalie will be driving part-time in the NASCAR truck series this season.
- The Youth Movement
The NASCAR’s new generation is finally taking over and is ready to introduce itself to the new world. The days of Gordon, Stewart, and Earnhardt are finally gone, taken over by the new names, Erik Jones, Chase Elliot, Byron and Ryan Blaney are all set to blow your minds off this year.
- Post-race Inspections
It was only after many days of the races that the fans would find out that there was something illegally settlements in the winning cars when there is nothing much left to do. This year, however, NASCAR has created new rules for the post-race inspections.
The inspection will now take place immediately after the race, on spot. If the driver fails it, he or she would be disqualified. This would result in losing multiple winning points for the team as well such as the playoff points, stage points and the automatic playoff berth which results in winning mostly. Afterward, the second position holder will be transferred to the first place instead.
- Aerodynamic Package
NASCAR plans to change the aerodynamics of the cars this year. The taller spoiler, longer front splitter, and wider radiator pan will help increase handling and cause more fierce competition. This way, cars will be prevented from being pulled away from the fields and strongly held racing. The restrictor plates will also be removed leading towards the drivers to have a strong throttle response.
- The gambling and daily fantasy
Real sports fans know that there is no excitement like the excitement of gambling and daily fantasy of a race. Especially a NASCAR fan will tell you that it is harder to watch the race until your eyes, your heart and especially your money is set on one single driver.
