The one who won
It was good luck for Kenseth when his third win came on the occasion of his 41st birthday. You must have seen all the exciting news breaking out on blogs and sites if not on the television. The main reason was the superb condition of Math Kenseth’ car. It has performed well for the third time in three consecutive races this season. The number twenty team was especially happy to see it pay off in the final round. Kenseth and his Dollar General Toyota car piloted to a win on Sunday at the Kobalt Tools 400 race on the Las Vegas Motor Speedway event. The race was on his birthday and he was charged to hold off Kasey Kahne in the final 30 laps. It was certainly a duel to match and watch. The victory lap came when the late pit stop came on and Kenseth merely refueled. After that he was out on the pit road and onto his winning streak when other cars were busy getting two car tires replaced.

NASCAR Seeks To Restore Individuality In Cars Once Again
Understandably, numerous fans across the world were extremely upset with this change. It somehow reduced the charm of the game to a great extent since a Ford lover could hardly distinguish their favorite car from a Toyota. Finally, in an attempt to rectify this error, NASCAR has tried to bring back the glorious days of the past and restore the individuality that these cars sported so proudly.
Finally Something To Look Forward To
What’s more is that these cars are now being made to resemble what they stand for. For example, the Talladega track saw the introduction of 3 new vehicles into its family – the Chevrolet SS, the Ford Fusion and the Toyota Camry. Moreover, manufacturers and officials are now trying to ensure that when a new car now comes along, it should try to be as generic as possible. Thus, fans can now go back to the old days of hooting for their favorite cars instead of just hooting for their favorite driver or manufacturer. Another advantage that these cars could bring to the fold is that are not as easy to handle for the drivers. This brings the focus back on driver skills which was missing in the past few years. Lastly, these new cars might also help in restoring the old era creativity which teams used to gain an edge over each other and in turn restore the true charm and spirit of NASCAR.
The past Wednesday gave us a glimpse at the future of NASCAR racing. The biggest plus was that it seemed right out of our textbooks reminding us of the glorious days of our past. The biggest disadvantage of the modern day NASCAR car models was that they were completely stripped out of their older era individuality and one could hardly distinguish in between the Ford or the Chevrolet or the Toyota. This was due to a major shift in trend which concentrated on bringing out cars that looked a lot like the ones standing in the showrooms to boost sales.
The Glorious Days Of The Past
However, this was not always the case. A few decades ago, every manufacturer had their unique cars which stood out in their individuality from one another. Most of these cars were built to get the little advantages a manufacturer could. One saw an amazing array of spoiler sizes or the nose changes or constant changes in technology from one track to the other. As a result, a car which ran beautifully in Michigan might not be as good at Daytona. This uncertainty was one of the most appealing aspects of NASCAR. However, following the death of Dale Earnhardt in 2001, NASCAR underwent tremendous changes to improve driver safety. As a result, the cars were completely redesigned to improve their safety features which enhanced driver safety to such a tremendous level that drivers could walk away from major accidents unscathed. However, in doing so, the NASCAR cars were stripped out of their individuality. Thus, one of the main purposes of the manufacturers which was to promote their specific brands was completely defeated.
