Nascar has a long way to go to get their fans back, but maybe this is a start.

The Fusion and the SS look bad-ass, whereas the Camry just looks, eh.

Nope, they are slightly different.

It's weird seeing the blue 2 as a Ford

eh, not for me. It was a Ford before it was a Dodge. But I am sad to see dodge leaving NASCAR, one has to wonder what their Charger would have looked like. And actually they had a 2013 Charger trimmed out and all ready to go before they pulled the plug.

I wish they would go back to taking a car off the showroom floor and racing them. These are not 'stock' cars.

I really like the Fusion. Looking forward to how it improves the races.

They haven't been stock for decades, though. What models of today's production cars would people pay to see race anyway?

At least these look more like the showroom model than the last several attempts.

I realise they haven't been stock for decades. That's not my point. If they're going to race these roll cages with sheet metal they should consider not calling them "stock" cars. As for what models, people are watching the sheet metal versions of the fusion, ss and camry now. What's the difference between that and the monte carlo or thunderbird? or torino, charger and roadrunner? two doors? It used to matter what brand of car you raced, hell the manufacturers used to get points and a trophy at the end of the season not to mention the notariety of winning a nascar championship. Now they are so close to being the same car its not even funny.

    • We don't need Fournette to do the latter. He'd just fit it perfectly and could be a generational talent. There are other backs in this draft who could fit into a power run game built to utilize the play action and open up the intermediate and deep routes for Cam's big arm. We definitely should be adding some more short passing game into our offense, but not as a foundation of our offense. It should come from the slot position which hopefully is filled by the addition of Shepard or by a draft pick, ideally not a top 10 pick in McC or even at 40 though. If we want our offense to incorporate the short passing game as a feature then Cam needs to improve quite a bit there.
    • I think he lost weight will help get his speed back. He did look slowed last year. But he also had ankle problems and was beat up.  We need a traditional running game that can operate without Cam's own ability to run. Fournette and Stew would beat the piss out of a defense.  Receivers need to step up as does our OC.  Cam made some bad reads and held onto the ball a lot last year. But he knows how to ball.
