#5 Kurt Busch and Martin Truex Jr take part in next gen practice session at Charlotte Motor Speedway
Kurt Busch and Martin Truex Jr took part in a two-day test session at Charlotte Motor Speedway, and while NASCAR officials were reportedly unsatisfied with the results, it was nice to see what the future of the sport would look like. Furthermore, it was fun hearing the drivers discuss the changes and what they are looking forward to when the new car is officially unveiled.
“It accelerates quick, it stops quicker, it turns quicker, it’s nimble,” Busch said. “All the lap time that’s been gained is through the infield section with this independent rear suspension and the ability to shift quicker. Really, the car is more effective, and the car is more sensitive to changes and to feel … you feel everything more vividly.”
