NASCAR is doing away with the wing on the CoT. No, this is not a typo.
A memo was sent out to crew chiefs on Friday notifying them that there will be a test held at Charlotte(Lowe’s) Motor Speedway on March 23-24 to test the hideous brick, minus the wing, plus a spoiler.
Sources say that the spoiler could replace the wing as soon as Martinsville, and that it will certainly replace the wing at some point in the near future.
It is great that NASCAR is finally reconsidering the ghastly design of its precious brainchild. The spoiler on the back will actually improve the look of the car more than what people may think, as evidenced by the new Nationwide car.
Now, all we can hope is that the racing will finally get better…
…and that they decide to do away with the front splitter next.
