The High-Tech Components of NASCAR's Next Gen Race Car

We take a look at how NASCAR's Next Gen race car design introduces a raft of spec parts this season.

With the Daytona 500, NASCAR's top-level Cup Series moves to a new set of rules for the 2022 regular season. This follows a non-championship all-star race staged on an improvised track inside the Los Angeles Coliseum Feb. 6. 

With the new rules, teams are sharing most of the unseen parts in identical specifications to contain development and manufacturing costs while contributing to closer racing. The stock car racing group has released a complete list of the chosen suppliers for many of the specified parts and we've gathered them for a closer look in our slide show.
