Nah, unless something terrible happens (like Elliott Sadler's flip in 2000). Until then, it'll just be crazy fast. Might be a good change..

The 174 record was average speed around the track, they were probably doing 185ish on the straights abd getting down to 170 or lower coming into the corners.
Old qualifying record is 194.

Last year the top cars were touching 210 going into T1.

We need to make the race better than before. This should be good.

It's going to be interesting, for sure. Honestly, this day in age, with all the advances in safety, it's safe to run at these speeds now. I remember a few years ago Rusty Wallace was testing at Talladega without a RP on his car, and he was hitting 240mph.

I remember that, wasnt that the fastest NASCAR speed ever on a closed course.

Don't know what will happen but the first Michigan race just got my attention. Going to be interesting to see what happens.
