I know I have said this a few times on this site, but here it goes again. The 2 Cup Races at Pocono had lots of passing in the pack. But in 2 total races, Except for restarts, there was NOT 1 green flag pass for the lead - Not one. Don't know how NASCAR is going to do it, but they need to find a way for more passes for the lead after a restart.

I thought the races were boring, only thing that made them half way interesting was the different pit strategies used. Sorry for another rant, just not the Pocono races I use to remember. I bet Indy will be the same - ZERO passes for the lead. Thanks

No.
This is an intractable physics problem.

Downforce and turn in works when you have denser air on a surface but as soon as you get into the rooster tail of lower pressure disturbed air, that downforce lessens.

F1 solved the problem with DRS; which is not applicable here.
Most touring car series don't have this unique problem because most overtakes are done under brakes.
