This is race ten and the second superspeedway race of the year. Beginning with this race superspeedway cars will utilize a new downforce aero package and a smaller tapered spacer to restrict air flow to each engine that will offset the need for a restrictor plate, which has been used at this track since 1987. As a result, the cars will have more horsepower and more maneuverability, along with more downforce and stability to provide even more passing opportunities throughout the entire field. This track already holds the record for most lead changes (88) in NASCAR. We should still see what we have almost always seen here-pack racing, a tightly bunched pack of cars two and three wide for most of the day. We are only nine races into the season and no one wants to get caught up in someone else’s mistake or misfortune. Many times drivers who know each other will move thru traffic on the track together nose to tail – “drafting” – and with the season just beginning, it will be interesting to see if old alliances stay intact or if new ones are formed due to team loyalties or drivers wanting to hook up with others they think can take them farther. Ford  has won 12 of the last 20 races here, including the last seven in a row. Team Penske has eight of those wins and Stewart Haas driver Aric Almirola won here during the Playoffs last year for the most recent Ford win. Will Ford dominance continue? We’ll know on Sunday.
