Ford and Toyota Reveal Their New Generation of NASCAR Trucks (Article) (Article)
NASCAR is loosening up its playbook to allow a little more freedom in design for trucks in the 2022 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series
On Thursday, Ford unveiled its 2020 racing Ford NASCAR F-150 set to make its racing debut next year at Daytona. The truck was developed at Ford’s Dearborn, Michigan, design center and at the Ford Performance Technical Center in Concord, North Carolina.
NASCAR is allowing Chevrolet, Ford and Toyota to update their truck noses and tails next year to more align with the vehicles that find their way to the driveways. For Ford, that means a new composite nose surface that more resembles a production F-150, as well as new composite hood and tail areas. The hood, now steel sheet metal, will be composite for 2022. The new-look fender will remain sheet metal.
On Friday, at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, Toyota unveiled its new race truck for the 2022 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series season. For the first time, Toyota will campaign the Toyota Tundra TRD Pro beginning at Daytona International Speedway in February.
Toyota's commitment to race vehicles that closely resemble production vehicles continues with this all-new Tundra TRD Pro. With the new body for 2022, Toyota is celebrating the launch of all new next generation Tundra models on showroom floors.
Great race especially at the end. Ty Gibbs was giving it his all until he missed a turn. Good stuff.XFINITY ROVAL RECAP
A wild last few laps at the Charlotte Roval, and a very relieved winner. Let's dive into this elimination race of the Xfinity Series!!
AJ Allmendinger drove his Chevy to the win with a hard charging group of drivers right behind him. Allmendinger clinched a spot in the Round of 8 in the NASCAR Xfinity Series Playoffs. He won for the fifth time this season and the 10th time in his career. Winning for the sixth time on a road course, Allmendinger broke a tie with race runner-up Austin Cindric for most-ever Xfinity road course victories.
Allmendinger, who worked his way forward from the 14th starting position, took the lead for good on Lap 48 when Ty Gibbs suffered brake problems, blew the chicane on the backstretch and had to come to a full stop before continuing.
Austin Cindric, the defending series champion, already had clinched a spot in the Round of 8. Third-place finisher Daniel Hemric joined him, along with Justin Haley (fourth Saturday), Brandon Jones (fifth), Noah Gragson (sixth), Justin Allgaier (ninth) and Harrison Burton (15th).
Jeb Burton, Myatt Snider, Jeremy Clements and Riley Herbst were eliminated from the Playoffs. Last week's winner, Brandon Brown finished 22nd.

Chase said it best after Harvick plowed nose first into the wall in heartburn turn (turn 1) - "Karma." Chase was behind him by 2 car lengths.As for the Elliot and Harvick feud, the most damning words were between Chase and his crew chief. I don't understand the fans booing Harvick at all. To have Hendrick complain is laughable.
During Racehub's radioactive portion of the show, it was clear Chase was going to "pay back" Harvick if he got the chance. Had Harvick not wrecked himself I have no doubt the pay back was coming. As it was Chase was about 2 car lengths behind Harvick when Harvick drove straight into the turn #1 wall.I'm sure that Chase would have dumped Harvick if Harvick didn't wreck.
This not the first time "Happy Harvick" has done this type of stuff. He has done this several times in the past. If he thinks you've done him wrong, he doesn't forget and will wait until the opportune time to retaliate.but I have no idea why Harvick is acting the way he is too.
When a driver dumps the fan's favorite, what did you expect?fans boo Harvick
Two unrelated actions except that Harvick's action resulted in the bumper cover coming loose. If the roles were reversed, Stewart would have complained if Chase took Harvick out.Hendrick complained about Harvick action but completely ignored the yellow flag caused by Chases bumper cover.
Sour grapes if you ask me.The NASCAR rules change according to the offender.
Not my words but some motor racing talking heads.
No sour grapes here.Two unrelated actions except that Harvick's action resulted in the bumper cover coming loose. If the roles were reversed, Stewart would have complained if Chase took Harvick out.
If you have a problem with NASCAR not black flagging the #9 for the bumper cover, take it up with NASCAR. The bumper cover is not required for road courses except it has to be there at the start. If this had been an oval, yes, Chase would have to pitted to get it fixed. They said this during the broadcast.
Sour grapes if you ask me.
