09:32 AM ET 07.03 | The Sprint Cup Series will not be the only thing making its debut next weekend at Kentucky Speedway. The track will also host the first test of cars designed with electronic fuel injection. During an open test day Thursday, originally scheduled so Cup teams would have extra time on a track they have not previously competed, teams will also be allowed to test cars with fuel injection. NASCAR officials expect each of the four manufacturers to have at least one car with EFI on the track. They will all likely be driven by drivers not competing in Saturday's Cup race.

NASCAR is a scam.

Have to figure a way to cheat and beat that fuel injection.

You'd think these cars would be able to run on alcohol, considering NASCARs' origins.

love him or hate him, you have to love Dale Jr's brutally honest comments after the 400 last nite at Daytona..and i agree with him..thats not racing...when the only way to lead is to have another driver push you to the lead, thats a joke..
the plate tracks have had bump drafting in the past, but not the whole way around for 400-500 miles...

I guess if you end up 19th you feel that way. The drivers in the Top 15 might have a different slant on that statement. Just saying

Kind of loses the free for all atitude with guys dropping back looking for a hookup. Takes something out of racing for me.

to me it just isnt racing...to be competitive you have you have someone push you to the front? not racing at all.

After reading the whole stiry, Im siding this time with Jr, that stinkbag Johnson and his Pencil necked Geek crew chief, they left Jr under the bus,, even the anouncers said what the hell is johnson doing with 2 laps to go... Nope lets pit and screw Jr. Now thats the way I see it.

300K for the winner and Kenseth says he'll take 60K less and push Ragan across. Now I only drag-raced which i'm watching BTW, but I wouldn't care if my Girl was in the next lane, I want to win. Of course I can skip the rest of the night if I did :)

why do they hook up 2x2 from the start anyway? whats the point? why not ride around until theres 20 or 30 to go and then link up..

Because all it would take would be one tandem to decide they were going to do it and by the time there were 20 or 30 laps to go, they would have a double digit lap lead on the rest of the field.

That's the game that's currently being played. So, you learn to play it. Or, like Jr., just **** about it and finish 19th.
