The Car of Tomorrow

There’s a brand new car in Nascar that goes faster, safer, and makes a lot more competitive race! It’s called the Car of Tomorrow, and it definitely could be! This new car could revolutionize Nascar and the way races are done.

This car was first announced to the public on January 12, 2006, but has been in the making for 7 years. This car was made because of the death of Nascar superstar Dale Earnhardt Sr. who died in a wreck in the final lap of the Daytona 500. This car is made to increase fuel efficiency, safety, competition, and to lower maintenance cost for teams. Many other racers also dislike the CoT. Even Kyle Busch who won at Bristol with a CoT said “They suck,” in victory lane.

A total of 13 races using the car of tomorrow have taken place in 2007. Hendrick Motor Sports has 5 wins Hello viewers, this week I’m going to be talking about the Car of Tomorrow (CoT.)with The Car of Tomorrow, Joe Gibbs Racing has 3 wins, Dale Earhnhardt Inc. and Richard Childress Racing have 1 win. In the 2008 season, the CoT was originally thought to be used in only 26 races. However, after the Car of Tomorrow’s success in earlier races, Nascar asked owners about fully introducing the CoT in the 2008 season. 80% of Nascar owners voted for the CoT to be fully raced in 2008, so it was decided that this car will be full time next year.

Car models for the CoT include the Chevrolet Impala SS, Dodge Avenger, Ford Fusion, and Toyota uses the Camry. Most manufacturers use a different model in current cars, except Toyota, but many will most likely use the same model in the 2008 season.

Many people still did not like the CoT, one of the reasons being that Toyota is the first foreign car in Nascar. This season, Toyota has not normally done very well in races. People thought that it would level the playing field to quickly for Toyota, and not be fair to other manufacturers that have been perfecting their design for years. Another large advantage Toyota is getting is that Joe Gibbs Racing, which contains racers like Tony Stewart, will all be driving Toyota’s next season. Joe Gibbs Racing officially announced that they will be driving Toyota’s in the 2008 season.

Jimmie Johnson, with a win last week at Martinsville, trails Jeff Gordon by 53 points in Nextel Cup standings.
