Stewart Says All Gen-6 Car Needs Is Time

Tony Stewart said today that it is unreasonable to inflict any sort of timeline on the development of NASCAR’s New, Gen-6 Sprint Cup Series cars.

“I said it last week and I said it the week before,” said Stewart. “The one thing you have got to understand (is that) when we all built these new cars, not one of them came with an instruction manual. That is the easiest way to describe it. You literally have to figure it out as you go. It’s impossible to give you an answer, (or at least) an accurate answer.
“It is literally a work in progress,” he said. “I thought last week for a new car... (it) was a really good debut. I personally think it’s off to a great start and it’s got a lot of potential. We had good racing, we had a good finish and everybody is going to keep learning.
“Everybody has their piece of the equation that they will figure out,” he said. “You have to start somewhere, and for (the car) to debut the way that it has… has been a very positive start.”

    i heard during "groundhog day" at vagus that it might not be until may that the garage gets a handle on the car

  3. What a surprise; I guess this is NASCAR damage control on the heels of the Hamlin dust up. The mistake NASCAR made with this car was putting the teams in a smaller box in terms of chassis construction and adjustments.

    What NASCAR created is a spec chassis, and that simply isn't going to provide good racing, although it will keep a lot of cars on the lead lap if you are in to that (and declining attendance suggests most people are not).
