Since most of the drivers seemed to like the new setup I am sure Brian France will want to make other changes.
yeah, he will probably go back to the old set up.

Brian France was upset that the aero changes didn't make for "pack racing" at Kentucky.

You read that correctly. This is the guy that runs the sport.

France pleased with rules package at Kentucky: NASCAR Chairman Brian France liked what he saw from the racing Saturday night with the lower-downforce package, but admits he wants to see more drafting and pack racing. France made those comments Monday afternoon on "Sirius Speedway" on SiriusXM NASCAR Radio.

I saw a lot of passing that the so called wall would have stopped. Most racing needs less aero to allow more driver skill factor and possibly of run near each other.

kyle busch wins again, 3 times in the last four races, and has gone from 136 below thirtieth after sonoma, to 58 down after new hampshire. unless something bad happens in the next few races, he is going to make it to the chase this year.

IMO it will be a huge sham if he goes on to win the championship.

Well, it obvious to me NASCAR wants him in the Chase. They would rather have him over either Almandinger, Almarillo or even Newman. They want drivers who win and what better argument than for a guy with 3 wins now.
