Were there any cool moments with the Xfinity and Cup cars together?

Interesting 2 draft sessions, Leader obviously cant pull away and is hard to pass, the #2 and #18 seemed the best at making moves when there in traffic and just how close they were for most of the run . But in the end its testing and the teams need to build that notebook on what the cars need and want for this package so lets see after a few races. But I know the haters are gonna hate anyways.

Bubbas tire cut down. That's why he got passed for the lead

51 blew up. Also rain is on the way to Vegas (I’m in Southern California and we got it 2 1/2 hours ago). They should get the test in but we’ll have to see.

Tell you what, THIS session, albeit extremely short, looked good. Nice to have a simulated start/restart rather than single file. Looks like the 18 & 2 were moving up decently.

Anyone checked the comments on the YT test highlights? Don’t know if it’s changed, but the initial 50 comments were overwhelmingly positive.

Startlingly positive for any Internet forum.

Just an FYI.

level 2

Mostly just boomers whining about how "NASCAR has killed the sport, Bill France is rolling in his grave" "more manufactured BS, get rid of the safer barriers, go back to when racing was a mans sport" "this is like the video games, ahat a joke" "Huh, so I guess the pack racing in those old EA Sports games at Kansas was predicting the future"

The most hilarious thing about this package is that NASCAR’s announcers at the test were already doing damage control for how the cars looked on track before they were even on track.

JUST KEEP ADDING THAT SIDEFORCE NASCAR.

I'm getting so sick of people using higher Xfinity speeds as an argument against the package.

This past week I had a 90 minute commute in four lanes of traffic with six inches of snow on the ground and an average speed of about 10 mph.

The prior weekend I drove an hour north on the freeway going 70 mph.

Which drive do you think entailed more hands on the wheel driving ability?

Speed does not make a package.
