    Says @kylebusch: The drafting reminds him of the trucks. He could make moves back in the field, but when it came to actually making a pass on the leader, he couldn’t do it. Eventually the second-place car hits too much wind, he explained.

    @jeff_gluck
    Says @kylebusch: “We’ve taken the driver skill away from the drivers in this package. Anybody can go out and run wide open there. You (media) can probably do it. It’s going to be a lot more mental game, a lot more chess match, thinking how you make moves, how daring you’ll be.”

    @jeff_gluck
    Says @austindillon3: “There’s going to be more passing than we had in the last couple years” but says teams will have to do draft studies to figure out where the cars need to be in order to make moves.

    @jeff_gluck
    Kurt says he lost the draft like you would at a restrictor-plate track. So track position and crew chief calls are going to be vital in order to make sure drivers can stay up with the frontrunners this year.

    @jeff_gluck
    Says @clintbowyer: “It’s definitely different. It’s going to take time. … The cars seemed like they handled well. Obviously a lot of wide-open throttle time. Things we knew coming in.”

    Thank you. Yes, I know I am weird and I am ok with this. Lol. I know that there is really nothing to these test paint schemes, if you can even call them paint schemes. I for one, do enjoy seeing them.

    Saw a facebook comment that went like this:
    Fans: “We want more short tracks!”
    NASCAR: “Did you say plate racing at all mile and a half tracks? You got it!”

    I wanna see "Un-sponsored" cars look like this, not that Free Advertizement Chevy, Toyota, Ford BS... How is a Non-NASCAR known company going to know the car is Un-sponsored when they run huge FORD, Chevy, Toyota, logos on the car. if the car is blank,... they will know who is and who isnt... its not that hard to understand.

    Every year we are promised that the new aero package will end NASCAR’s problems and be the greatest thing since Joey Logano (sliced bread) and every year it’s the same boring snooze fest for a majority of the races. Not holding my breath for this year

    Personally, I would hold my opinions for the 2019 package until... around mid-season, I presume. It's still way too early for me to tell and rate the package. Once I got enough sample size to see how the package is performing, then I will give my verdict on the 2019 package.
