That being said, Steve Phelps is confident in the next generation vehicles. He says they are no different from the current ones. The challenges brought upon by the current health situation have been resolved, he confirms. Phelps points out that the manufacturers managed to get all the parts they needed and already have prepared enough as back up.
“When we will race at the Colosseum with this next gen car, it will be tested more than any previous iteration combined. There have been more laps run, more tests, more collaboration with race teams and OEMs and this is gratifying to me. That`s what this industry does well. If we have to tweak the car from a drivability standpoint as we go to Southern California and then Phoenix, we will do it. It will be no different than the current car we have”, he said in a podcast with Jason Stein.
Phelps says NASCAR is ready to accept any new changes needed to make the race better. He also underlines that everyone will work together to please the fans.
“If it`s not good, we will figure out a way to make it good”, said the NASCAR president.
