The article shares the author's views about the Car of Tomorrow (COT) in automobile racing. It's not a matter of whether the COT will race; it's a matter of when. For teams that have dragged their feet waiting to see when the COT would become a reality, time is running out to start building the submission car, which is due in the National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing's (NASCAR) hands by July 1. That's five months away, and NASCAR won't waver on the due date. NASCAR hopes a gradual change over three years will spread out the costs. Regardless, the obsolescence of the current models will cost teams millions of dollars.
