    Ryan Blaney and the #21 Ford team return.
    Josh Wise returns to the #32 Ford.
    Brett Moffitt returns to the #34 Ford.
    Reed Sorenson returns to the #62 Chevrolet.

    Note: NASCAR will use the high-drag aero package that was run at Indianapolis again this weekend.

    Well hopefully they wont have to race in the rain again, can't afford a repeat of the first race. On one hand it sucks they are bringing back the Indy package cause i thought it was a complete failure for what they were trying to do. On the other hand its a different track so maybe it will have a different result and Kyle obviously did well with it.

    My dad I both agreed we'd like to see it flop here too so NASCAR will stop trying it. Low-downforce is the clear-cut long term option to me.

    If Goodyear doesn't start bringing tire with some fall off, I'm not sure the aero will matter much.

    No joke. It seems like they are focused on making their tires last longer than having any kind of fall off. I think the Watkins Glen race would have been even better if they had tires the had fall off.

    The reason that's so is because every time there's a failure or two, everyone goes up in arms and pitches a fit. Thus, the failures look like bad PR for Goodyear. That's why they try to build an indestructible tire.

    Yeah even though it would be the teams fault for not brining their driver in when his tires are wore out. I'd be fine with tires that had little fall off if they stuck with a low down force package. I'm tired of all these tracks needing different packages. Of course the restrictor plate tracks need a different package but that should be it.

    I'd give ANYTHING if they'd build a car that had the safety innovations of the Gen-6 and the aero package of a car from about 2001. Really anywhere from 1995-2005 would be acceptable.
