NASCAR World reacts to 'unacceptable' car problem

NASCAR has had a number of problems with its Next Gen cars during the 2022 Cup Series. The same happened with Kevin Harvick's car at the Southern 500 on Sunday.

Drivers are reportedly facing more collisions in vehicles, and there have been several instances of cars catching on fire.

"I bet it's just the crappy parts on the race car like we've seen so many times," Harwick said.

We haven't decided anything. It's like safety stuff, we keep it going and keep going and the car keeps burning.

On Tuesday, NASCAR's senior VP of competition Scott Miller acknowledged that cars catching fire is "unacceptable" and said there are issues that need to be worked out.

It seems that fans are expecting more action from Miller and his team than discussing the problems.

The Next Gen Car replaced the Generation 6 model drivers used from 2013-21. It is the seventh different car to have been used in the Cup Series in the last 75 years.

There are nine races left on the 2022 NASCAR Cup Series schedule starting at Hollywood Casino 400 this Sunday.
