Aero Package

The low downforce package made its debut at Kansas Speedway in Saturday night's GoBowling 400.

With practice and qualifying during the day and the race at night, the event was a great test of the changes.

Carl Edwards is a fan of the low downforce package. After one practice session, he is excited about what he's seen. "I cannot thank NASCAR enough for making these changes. We went through all those tests last year, tried everything. NASCAR came back with the low downforce package, and I think it's really paid off. The racing's just more fun."
