    I know it was like that for qualifying last year. I'm just saying that I hope the new package will have an actual ticker this time, instead of the 9x9 box (especially the 9x9 box's predecessor, the list sidebar that they kicked off the 2014-2017 graphic package with)
    Edit: Though seeing how it's scrolling through in the 500 practice has me doubtful it'll be much different for the ARCA race...

    Gonna be a real shame when one of those splitters goes and tears up that beautiful design in the trioval grass.

    Not talking about ARCA here, just speaking in general, though I'm sure the ARCA cars will find a way to tear it up without splitters.

    Try hitting the "S" key or "F2" instead of "Delete"

    One of those should wor- wait a minute...

    Cant please everyone... damn.

    Anyway I'm glad the offseason is over, ready to sit back and watch some racing!

    Unpopular opinion: I like the ticker this way. Doesn't block anything, cameramen dont have to work around the scorebug, and you can cycle through info a lot quicker.

    Pretty sure the current cars (ARCA or Cup) without valences still would tear up the grass becuase they ideotically stick the valences on the ARCA cars on a facia that sticks out like a lip a ton from the nose of the car. So the new ARCA “valence” looks just like the Cup cars’ front facia with a huge lip on the front but instead of a splitter underneath there’s a vacuum-cleaner looking tiny little valence under there, probably 3 or 4 inches our from the nose of the car

    I think what people want out of a new valence isn’t what arca has done, I think we want a car where the nose of the car drops directly down to the air dam, that way the front would bow in and let the grass through. With the current arca valence the cars will still dig into the ground at the right angle because they have a lip sticking out that will get caught in the ground.

    I like it, too. Not as pretty, but way more functional.

    Yeah, I actually like the new ticker now. Giving it a chance. At least it shows more info than Fox’s previous Vertical ticker.

    Considering theres people complaining about the ticker. Watch them change it for the Truck race. Lol

    Good Arca race. And yeah I was hoping for a new Fox ticker but not a vertical one. Back in 2013 when we had the previous one it was vertical during Daytona Speedweeks but they then made it horizontal after complaints. I like horizontal a lot more than the entire left side of the screen covered up. But whatever it ends up being I'll make the ticker for NR2003 eventually.

    They did that 4 years ago, changed the layout for the truck race. Figured out how to show intervals the next week (thank god this one already has intervals), locked the top 3 on the left the next week, and finally added car number art in week 7. It took almost 3 months for it to reach its final form last time, so I’m not impatient

    I just don't understand why they can't do something like what they used to have, what NBC, ESPN still use, hell even MAVtv uses a traditional horizontal ticker that scrolls.
