RCR engines continue to impress during Speedweeks. Can't wait for the duals at night this year.

Like this wasn't planned in advance. At least pro wrestling acknowledges that they are "sports entertainment" instead of trying to pass it off as 100% real.

Where have you been? That 3 car and RCR in general have been the fastest since they unloaded weeks ago in testing. This came as a surprise to nobody. The other RCR engined cars ran extremely well also today and the outside pole is occupied by an RCR engine as well and thats not even an RCR owned car.

RCR engines put out a lot of HP, even the no names did well. We will have to find out if they are durable. Hendrick engines didnt do that well, I think they and Toyota dialed back their engines.

A year after Danica "winning" pole, it does make one wonder.

Qualifying is all down to straight up engine power and the amount of tape you use. Just keep your foot down and follow your line. ECR has always had a very strong restrictor plate engine program so it is no surprise 2 cars with ECR engines are top 2.

EDIT: I guess it is ECR instead of RCR for the engine builder.
