Not much of note came out of the most recent sporadic competition meeting between NASCAR and the drivers on Saturday morning at the Charlotte Motor Speedway but that is a feature and not a bug these days.
Erik Jones and Martin Truex Jr., of note, didn’t even attend because they simply felt up to speed on everything given how frequently the two parties have communicated over the past calendar year. The relationship has been described over the summer as ‘over-communicating,’ which is a vast improvement from the previous decade.
On the docket Saturday morning was pretty standard stuff with NASCAR officials issuing documentation that detailed how much the new front and rear clips have improved the physical impact to drivers inside the cockpit.
They detailed their findings from recent crashes like Ryan Preece getting airborne at Daytona while also communicating their plans for upcoming tests — including one at Phoenix Raceway after the Championship Race to continue working on a rules package improvement for short tracks.
It was so not newsworthy that Kyle Larson said he kind of tuned out during the presentation.
