They flattened turns 1 & 2 so I would expect slower speeds.  Not much but enough to make a difference.

But the biggest difference for Texas Motor Speedway will not be the new surface. Rather, it is the decrease in banking in Turns 1 and 2, which have gone from 24 degrees to 20.

Maybe they smoothed out those turns, I sat in turn 1 a few years ago and the cars were hitting a dip in the turn and 3 wheels were liable to come off the ground.

The Xfinity race is a crash fest. Should've left it alone.

First part of race was dicey until track got rubbered up. Then the race became a snooze fest like always. 2nd place car finished 2 seconds back and 3rd place was 20 sec back. Only 9 cars on the lead lap.

Grateful for stage racing and I hope there are a number of cautions. Restarts are the only thing fun to watch there. As for the long green flag runs there where cars get so spread out, my wife says it is more exciting to watch cars drive by on the freeway  :-[

But for some reason she still likes to go and will be there with me today

I think it's in all of our blood, we get on message boards and gripe and gripe, but when the gates open we are always there. There's a few local dirt tracks in the area that all of us locals complain about, but we always show up. :)

Boring Texas as always. We left with 70 laps left. Lots and lots of empty seats today as usual. They should have narrowed the track not widened it.

I have wondered what might be if they moved the wall back coming off 2, would they run in there 2 or 3 wide like Indy cars do?

Honestly I doubt there is anything that can be done there to keep the cars from getting spread out. They could maybe make the turns all 30 degrees and make it a restrictor plate race :-)

I think over time turns 1 and 2 will improve as they get more rubber and wear.  Early in the race you had to be down low but near the end, cars were able to be 2 wide going through there.
