    Still need to get rid of the splitter and use an "old time" front spoiler.
    Ditch the side skirts, too!

    They still have bump stops instead of a real suspension??

    And if the changes don’t add to competitiveness and viewership continues to drop, new rules will be enacted mid season which may include but not limited too; fan participation in the pit crew, crew chiefs are allowed to hit another crew chief with a folding chair once per race, mandatory driver participation on Twitter the last 5 laps of the race, and 3 drivers per race must have an in car goat or if not enough goats are available, a minimum of 4 chickens (drivers chosen by voting during the reality show “Worlds Fastest Goat (or chickens)!”.

    It's already been done...........
    Some of you may not be aware that one of the Flock brothers raced his Hudson Hornets in Nascar with a pet monkey riding on his shoulder circa 1952. The monkey was named "Jocko Flocko".
