Drivers react to Talladega test

Talladega Superspeedway was the site Wednesday for a test of the new body styles for NASCAR race cars in 2013.

Here's how a few drivers reacted after the test:

Ford's Ricky Stenhouse Jr.: “It seemed pretty racy out there when we got in the seven-car packs. The two-car tandem could catch the group, then kind of stall out, and a single car could run right there with them.”

Chevy's Kasey Kahne: "We had five or six cars out there, and it was actually pretty dicey and pretty exciting. I think the cars are unique because they look different. They have a fresh look , and it resembles the manufacturer’s car, which is great for the fans, who ought to be able to go out and buy a similar car.”


  1. They don't resemble anything beyond the standard stock car.

    If they can tandem draft that's good - NASCAR needs to let them tandem draft all they want because the sport needs nonstop passing more than irrelevant "manufacturers identity."
