Days before NASCAR celebrates its past, the sport looked to its future. Amid smoke and lights, the Next Gen cars for Chevrolet, Ford and Toyota roared into the public’s view for the first time , a few days before the Cup Series convenes at Darlington Raceway for its throwback weekend . A sport with roots to moonshiners racing the law, seeks to show that innovative spirit more than 70 years later.
