Q: What are all the changes to the cars we keep hearing from NASCAR?
-- William in Reno

A: Hi William, and thank you for your email. In the simplest terms possible, NASCAR has made significant aerodynamic changes to the cars that will make the racing closer on tracks like Las Vegas Motor Speedway and put more of the pressure for a team's success on the driver. Cars probably will not be able to stretch out big leads anymore, there will be more two and three-wide (and sometimes four-wide) racing and more cars running on the lead lap.

If the test we hosted here at LVMS on Jan. 31 and Feb. 1 is any indication, we're in for a wild and exciting race on March 3. We hope to see you here.
