    No advantage to run NW race

    At least in the case of tires. The NW series will run the same tire that is being replaced for the Cup race.
    So, gaining any advantage by what they would have learned from running the same tires is out the window now.

    They will all have a level playing field with just 75 minutes to practice/scuff the new tires.

    • Does the fact that they're bringing new tires for a late practice session mean that they will actually use them for the race tomorrow? Just curious. This practice with new tires at a time when the race will probably be ending tomorrow is gonna make everyone throw all their test session and practice notes right out of the window.

      • Richard, it sounds like they all will be using these new left side tires. In fact, I believe all the old left-sides have been removed from the track.

        And I concur with Raceboy that blown engines may be a factor tomorrow. After P3, one should add up the total # of practice laps that each of our cars has run, and then make our final choices.
