It seems to me that Talladega was more exciting this year than in most recent races. While the finishes have almost always been good, there seemed to be more action early and in the middle of the race this year.
The bump-drafting was definitely subdued as drivers found new (and old) ways to pass on the huge track. But what happens when the cars hit Talladega in October with new pavement on hand? A one-groove 2.6-mile track doesn’t sound like a lot of fun.
What do you think? Will the racing be as good? Is bump-drafting a thing of the past, or will the new pavement cause teams to have to bump-draft to pass again?
