What’s new in NASCAR for the 2018 season

Being stuck on the couch inside in January makes me want to ponder deep questions and dream about the future

What faraway places do I want to visit? How many pounds do I need to lose? Can I be a better friend this year? But if the question burning up your mind is should this finally be the year I take that RV trip across the country and visit every NASCAR track in the nation, well here are 10 new things to look forward to on your once-in-a-lifetime journey.

(Hint: You should definitely make that trip.)

1. New Chevrolet: It’s all about the wheels, right? The Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 is the hot, new item on every serious car person’s list. For NASCAR fans, it’s a chance to watch it whiz around the track for the first time, then buy one that looks exactly like it from the showroom floor. For competitors, it’s a new challenge to see if the Chevrolet teams can find speed quickly. Intrigue smells a lot like burning rubber in this case. See the new Chevrolet.

2. New rivalry: Petty vs. Pearson, Earnhardt vs. Gordon, Yarborough and the Allisons fighting it out at the Daytona 500. Whatever the era, NASCAR knows how to spice up your Sunday drive. Enter Chase Elliott and Denny Hamlin, whose run-in during last season’s NASCAR Playoffs at Martinsville has taken on its own legendary status. Will things pick up where they left off? By the sounds of the two drivers during the offseason — uh, yeah.
