    I don't think the manufacturers want to spend the money on pure, bespoke, unlimited, etc. cars. The supercar manufacturers need new models they can sell to billionaires, and the big manufacturers need to say "look, the hybrid we put in our SUVs is cool!".

    I can't believe a pro would do this:




    What could allow Austin Dillon to do something so dangerous? It can't be down to driver error.

    For those not in the know, during Daytona night practice, Dillon overshoot Turn 6 and went all the way around the tire wall and rejoined the track after using the Turn 1 runoff... with cars coming at full speed.

    Basically Austin, as a Rolex rookie, didn't realize the tire barrier was the wall for both sides. He had no idea cars were on the other side.

    I doesn't seem like a great design actually. I don't think it's been that open in the past? (Obviously for a while though with that sat image). I could see a car getting punted just right (wrong) and bad things happen.

    Looks like a tire curtain instead of a tire barrier would solve the problem.

    It's been like that since they paved that whole section. When it was grass I believe the island was connected to the blue armco barrier.

    He's the only driver known to have done it. That alone illustrates his deficiency.
