The recent aerodynamic changes to the cars and the new asphalt at the track have made for some interesting strategies. The "2-car tango" is now the fastest way to run: basically they have found that 2 cars running nose-to-tail go faster than groups of cars stuck together in lines. So now you must have a strong dance partner if you want to contend for the win.

Discuss.

..................Did I hear or read correctly, Did NASCAR again change the Front Air Intake allowing more air to cool the Cars? I thought I heard they made these changes since the NationWide race, am I correct?

DeftOne, they have to turn left; if they turn right they hit the wall...DUH!

Johnny, I heard something like that, but I thought they did it to try and slow them down some more after they were still exceeding 205 mph in the 2-car draft.

Anyways, it was an interesting race and the green-white-checkers ending was pretty exciting with the youngster Trevor Bayne winning for the Wood Brothers.

I look forward to the rest of the year and hope Harvick can get caught back up quickly in the points after starting out in the hole he's in...
