How NASCAR is gearing up for its "biggest change" in 2022

It’s not just Formula 1 that’s set for upheaval in 2022, as the NASCAR Cup series adopts its Next Gen cars that will cast any in-built advantages aside and require teams to adopt a totally new way of operating. Far more than just a change of machinery, the new cars amount to a shift in NASCAR's core philosophy

Finding speed has been the backbone of NASCAR Cup Series racing since its inception and will remain so with the introduction of the Next Gen car in 2022. What will change, in addition to the much-altered designs of the cars themselves, are the tools teams will employ to make their cars go faster.

The requirement to change these tools has arisen because much of the technology behind the cars is also in flux. That’s welcome news for manufacturers, who have desperately wanted to see the technology in NASCAR racing have more relevance to production-model cars.
