Toyota’s David Wilson Believes TRD and all Manufactures are Behind Regarding Next Gen Car

While NASCAR’s Next Gen car remains on schedule for its 2022 debut, Toyota Racing president David Wilson admits teams will still be working on the car while racing it next year.

Asked how comfortable he was with where Toyota teams stood on preparing the new cars for their 2022 debut, Wilson said, “Not comfortable. We have some work to do. I’ll qualify that by saying I expected not to be comfortable right now.

“When the schedule was rolled out earlier this year, we all knew it was going to be asking a lot. The original schedule had parts being released to teams in the middle of June and I don’t think they got released until a month later. We’re all behind and that’s just a fact.”
