670HP #Soon

Staff member Matt Holden posted in the forums what may be coming up leading up to the Daytona 500

You said there are no changes, that’s not true. The gen 6 is a known entity and directly mirrors how the Nextgen works, and that car is currently being changed to the 2022 spec, so if it works on the Gen 6 then it will work on the Nextgen car as well. Also, within the group we put together through the 2021 discussion, there are multiple leagues running Gen 6 superspeedway races in the coming weeks where we can see the changes at work and update what is needed.

Saying nothing has changed is completely false, we’ve been working on this for months, but as I said in that discussion topic we were going to take it off the forum because we had all we needed to move forward and can work in a controlled environment to push things forward

    1. Ellis – p24. Miss practice and qualifying showed up on the grid, literally pretty much ran what I had I got screwed on a wave around it was two laps down.

    1. Brian-.Lucas Oil P6 Not a bad result for a new track
