NASCAR’s next generation of cars to put ‘stock’ back in stock car racing


NASCAR doesn’t want any difference between the cars on the race track next year and the ones out in the parking lot with hopes that brand identity will create more interest among car enthusiasts.

Instead of all four models looking alike, Chevrolet, Ford, Toyota and Dodge were told to create new cars that won’t fit in the current one-size-fits-all template. The current generation of cars essentially is defined by decals, not defining shapes.

That will all change next year.
