Like every race series, NASCAR periodically updates the rules which define the cars. Unlike most race series, NASCAR's roots go back nearly 100 years, and so does some of the technology. But the 2022 update is huge: independent rear suspension, 6-speed sequential transaxles, 18" wheels with wider, lower profile tires, coil over suspension.

  • Do you think this Next Gen car will make racing more exciting? Should we have Jobe build one?! - Jerry

    • Yes

    • Dale would be screaming he can’t feel the air anymore…yep that’s why drivers can feel another car, it’s because of the angle the air flows off the cars around them, with the switch you won’t be able to push another car without touching it..

    • Dude None of your modded cars survive the race track, do that first. then think about NASCAR.^_^

    • Nascar was built on cheating and getting away with it. The one and single thing I am most excited about is seeing just how they get creative. You guys you self have done an episode of crazy cheats done through the years.

    • I really liked you Jerry… but every single video you do something unforgivable😪 Why would you even ask if you should build one and have a donut nascar team? Is the sky blue? Is an orange orange? Do we wanna see you guys do more builds? What do you think????? (The answer is “hell f@&$*#% yeah”)

  • Nascar sucks.

  • The “Star Wars day” joke doesn’t work when you’re on the other side on the planet...

  • LOL just wait until EV cars are used.

  • Will they use a foot operated clutch to change gears ?

  • So basically it equalizes the playing field for all drivers so it basically depends on the driver mostly

  • Nascar will be under attack by the left soon, they use gas not battery packs lol thats not part of their green agenda

  • Looking forward to buying this car “stock” down at my local Chevy or Ford dealer should be pretty sweet.

  • Dale would be rolling over in his grave screaming , leave my seat alone, where’s my freaking gauges,and who move my darn cup holder…lol..and what’s wrong with my shifter, it’s stuck in first…AND I CANT FEEL THE DARN AIR ANYMORE.,and how am I meant to get a car loose if I can’t use the air flowing off of my car anymore…and they called me a cheater, lol..

  • NASCAR sucks. Derp.

  • Cool they can take those left turns ever so slightly faster now lol

  • Didn't they have V8 Camry that nobody can buy?

  • Cinco de Mayo: Am I a joke to you?

  • This how they beat the lightning McQueen

  • Rent a nascar ride.. must be 48" tall or more.. pre programmed for designated speed by nascar.. pre-built to exact specs by nascar.. regulated in every aspect by nascar.. all rent-a- ride participants must say exactly what nascar dictates if successful in any way.

  • Finally engineering in NASCAR. Modular cars oh man

  • Hey, I got a good idea... Let's just get a bunch of Porsche 911 GTSR GT3, Dodge Viper GTSr GT3, Ford Mustang GT3... Hell, just take all the Lemans 24h GT3 cars, put them on a NASCAR track and call it NASCAR... Seems to me, and I keep up a bit with international touring cars, and NASCAR has gone to the exact same specs as a typical GT3 car... The way they making these "stock" cars now, it would be nothing to take one to the Circuit De La Sarth (Lemans track) or the Nordschleife (Nürbergring, Germany)...

  • this mean nascar will get more tracks that aren't just circles?

  • Dude I would love to win the truck and give it to my dad

  • The year can pass but one thing is clear chevrolet never going to change the 2018 camaro zl1 in nascar lol

  • NASCAR is getting weird because it is being run by Complete Morns! Stage racing, the chase format! All of this crap came from Brian France! He is a big NFL Football fan so he has made the NASCAR races look more like football games than car racing! Stage racing equals the quarters in an NFL game. The chase format is like the DUFUS NFL's idiotic idea of having a ton of teams in the playoffs! It used to be the champions of each division would play in the Super Bowl! Now they have what they call WIld card teams. These teams didn't win their division but since the NFL wants more games which equals more money for the owners of the NFL they have included also-rans in the playoffs! NASCAR has followed suit and done the same thing! Totally useless! If Earnhardt Senior were still around he would be screaming at NASCAR to stop the madness!

    • People cried about drivers dominating championships. So they changed it to make dominating harder... people cried. cries “I hate watching 1 driver lead all the laps with a 10 second lead” *adds stages to add mid race excitement and bunch up the field* cries If you think Dale would be crying about the way NASCAR has attempted to appeal to new audiences (their old one is 60+ years old) then you’re an idiot.

  • Jackson storm is here

  • the 4th generation still my favorite one

  • The appeal of nascar has always been big horsepower muscle cars with no traction, drivers ballsy enough to push them past their handling limits and pit stops that look and sound like combat. Nascar has gone in the complete opposite direction...

  • Unless you've seen it live, how can you criticize? Awesome show!

  • Ok bro, are you conan o'brien's son?

  • V8's lasted for too long, time to change for twin turbo V6 or L4 engines

  • Lol @ nascar

  • 2:24 R.I.P The intimidator (4th gen car)

  • good luck....I stopped watching after it became a " race" issue....

  • I mean that’s a lotta content

  • A donut nascar team would be amazing

  • They need to go back to racing actual STOCK cars. Watching cars drive around in a circle for hours is infinitely more enjoyable if they are driving cars I can actually buy and drive myself.

  • Do a nascar team

  • Donut NASCAR Team

  • Bring back the superbird.

  • wow... thats more discusting then i expected, Nascar died when Number 3 did...

  • Donut race team sounds great

  • I'm excited!

  • When NASCAR went BLM, BANED the stars and bars and banned firearm and ammo sponsors they went over the line and made themselves UN watchable for me and many others................ they went FULL BORE PUSSY!!!!!!! They can “F” off!!!!! I feel bad for many of the teams out there that no longer get support from the fans because of the PUSSIES at the top of the organization.

  • video starts at 2:16

  • Oooo pleeease start a Nascar team, or at least sponsor one

  • Americans discovering independent suspension in 2021 is the most American thing ever.

  • Punch it turn left, punch it turn left, it's still toilet bowl racing and no stock cars, no stock engines !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Just donated 😬 I’ll be saying my prayers tonight for that Ram1500 🥶

  • But can we buy one on Monday?

  • Nosecar

  • Jeremy Clarkson left the chat.

  • They should ban all fuel sports they are just a waste of gas I could be using to get shit done

  • I miss the days of homologation, and teams building their own cars. I don't know how anyone calls this stock car racing with a straight face. Maybe it's time to change the NASCAR name to something less dishonest and misleading.

  • Who's the low rent Markiplier?

  • so basically NASCAR was weird and now they are becoming more normal and you call this "Getting Kinda Weird"

  • 'Most advanced steel space Fram ever designed' probably because no one in this decade is building a car with a steel space frame, NASCAR fucken sucks

  • Don't worry, it already is...

  • You are absolutely right. It's weird to hear in 2021 that Nascar is finally upgrading from 50s/60s tech to 90s tech. quote: "what the gearbox gives us is a very modern layout to the drivetrain." -meanwhile the Corvette C5 from 1997 in front of his office has a huge smile from mirror to mirror: "yayy, he is still calling me very modern :-D"

  • I really hope to see hybrid V6 powetrains in the next nascar series. Yeah yeah, V8 is tradition, but NASCAR used to be about roadcar technology, and the V8 is dead to the roadcar.

  • The more NASCAR changes, the more fans they lose. They should always look towards safety but between Rules changes and the Points system, they're constantly fixing something that 'Ain't Broke'. It's not a stick-n-ball sport. It unique. Well, at least it used to be before Brian France and his greed Effed it up.

  • Welcome to the 21st century NASCAR. Only 22 years late.

  • Let’s get a donut racing team

  • Donut Racing would be amazing

  • Yknow the ol sayin....if it ain't broke.... I mean...isnt racing supposed to be about skill and mastery of the machine? Shouldnt the flaws be something that make it truly a sport of skill...like the shifter....slap up...slap down...less prone to miss a shift..... That seems to me to take away from needing skill.

  • It ain't getting weird y'all getting way to soft. meat bags.

  • Hmmm TRX to go with my AMG GTR? Ordered.

  • wait does it mean it stops to be retarded and just drive in circles?

  • Hey.. Iv seen the next gen.. In cars 3😂

  • what i got from this video is that basiclly the sport is even easier now

  • Definitely let Aaron drive though lol

  • Was watching this then I saw the Trx part now I wanna watch videos of those😂

  • Kinda weird? what did they start? going right?

  • What is the circle in the thumbnail trying to point out?

  • What wait is this not an Aussie V8 supper car or am I just dreaming

  • Less stock to me

  • NASCAR has switched to a touring car chassis. Look for a lot more road races. Also look for a slow phasing out of a lot of the big oval tracks. This is what happened to Indy car, only four oval races two at the same track. Road tracks as well as pro races have track days, Porsche, Audi...etc club events and are busy almost every weekend. Texas, Dover, Talladega not so much. That is a lot of real estate that has gone up massively in the last few decades that sit idle 90% of the year. Add to that the drop off in crowds (even before COVID) and a lot of tracks don't make enough money to really maintain them. This is what killed off Riverside, Ontario and Fontana. The land is too valuable to have a non productive structure on. Fontana is somewhat different (or should be, but money always takes precedent) because it used to be a Kaiser Steel factory. The land was cheap because it was too contaminated for permanent inhabitation. It will be (as of now) turned into another Bristol style half mile track.

  • I got bored watching Nascar after 2 laps from the infield, suite, and stands...

  • Please start a racing team!

  • Donut deff isn't a big enough high enough revenue company to start a Nascar team lol.

  • Donut race team I’d love that

  • Is there still BLM s*** on the NASCAR tracks get Woke go broke

  • Until NASCAR puts STOCK CAR back into the program its just BS.. A bunch of cars built the same under with just different body's on them that resembles NOTHING like a stock car. Want keep speeds down put STOCK back in meaning something

  • You had me watching till 4:33. It is Camaro, NOT Camero. Jesus christ, you guys are car guys or so i thought.

  • Very exciting. A corporate sponsored race with identical hardware dictated by another corporate entity (Nascar). The competition between teams will be awe inspiring. Think I'll visit the local dirt track and watch some actual auto racing.

  • NASCAR adopts old tech and Jeremiah calls these changes revolutionary.

  • So Stock car Racing still isn't about stock cars? This is why they continue to lose viewership.

  • Dont waych NASCAR anymore, It is NOT racing, segments pit row speed, champion based on 10 races at the end of the season. It is a mere shell of its former self, not worth the time to watch.

  • Turn left turn left turn left.... Who else thing NASCAR is stupid.... ..?!

  • He said frame, not tub. Did I miss something? The tub is not the frame. No? Can't you have a steel frame with a carbon tub?

  • So still carbs. no fuel injection?

  • Or be the first Utuber to do a sponsorship on a nascar.

  • donut nascar yes

  • NASCAR is a political shitshow I didn't think people still watched it

  • this is ground breaking innovation. 2 rear wheels are different wheels; so they had to treat them as 2 different wheels rather than 1 wheel. makes so much sense when you think about it.

  • listening to Pump yell MO POWAH BABEH! over a NASCAR intercom system might get me to watch NASCAR. So a Donut NASCAR team is definitely a good idea.


  • The reason nascar is in the toilet bowl to start with, Engineers. It's a lot easier to sit and draw pictures when you can't actually do anything. Over 3 decades as a car builder, and you have to hear " I'm an engineer " that's why. An engineer for who ? The F- ing Tweetsie Railroad ?

  • Ok but don’t all the stock cars go abt the same speed?

  • Nascar should have looked into a monocoque chassis like almost every other racing series on the planet. It would be safer , more reflective of modern unibody stock cars, and probably a lot lighter so nascar could work on using less fuel also

  • Last Sunday (two days ago) I witnessed nascar going round (racing) COTA in Austin in the rain … now I would have thought that nascar acting a little more like f1 was good thing ; but it just felt weird. Mostly the drivers and teams were just openly not comfortable out there.

  • May the 4th be with you Revenge of the 5th

  • This is the car they should offer at the dealership . it could be my daily driver (could even have a truck variant).. I would even take it with no radio, AC and only one seat is fine.. THEN itd be STOCK car racing.

  • I can't understand viewers of Nascar... Almost nothing happens for like two hours, just some minor jockying for position. Sure the cars go fast... but if they were all capped at 45mph the race would be the same damn thing.
