Heading into the First Data 500, the 2018 NASCAR playoffs has been through a miserable stretch. Talladega was a four-car Stewart-Haas Racing freight train that gave us the fewest lead changes since 1973. Then, last Sunday a Kansas elimination race became notable for its unique ability to eliminate people from staying awake. The Round of 8 starts with some sluggish momentum in what’s been another difficult season for stock car racing. Pit road penalties? Pitiful passing? Zzzz.

Kansas is a state known for its tornadic activity; just look to the Wizard of Oz for proof. But don’t worry about such windy weather affecting NASCAR this weekend. Turns out the tornado already tore through this sport in the form of a four-car Ford freight train at Talladega last Sunday.

The 2018 Chevrolet Camaro was supposed to bulldoze the NASCAR competition. New car models in this sport typically lead to dominant performances, especially from the sport’s most successful manufacturer. Millions get poured into wind tunnel testing, development and engineering support to ensure fresh chassis lead to fruitful results.

As a NASCAR writer for more than 10 years, I’m supposed to give some sort of expert opinion entering this weekend’s inaugural race on the new Charlotte Motor Speedway ROVAL. Instead, I offer with a smile one word this sport needs to inject some genuine interest back into stock car racing.

 

Unpredictability.
