The issue of aero-blocking has taken center stage in NASCAR discussions, with opinions divided on its fairness and impact on racing dynamics. While some attribute it to the physics of aerodynamics, others argue that it gives slower drivers an unfair advantage in defending their positions. Kyle Larson has previously suggested eliminating rear cameras to level the playing field, and now Kyle Busch has come forward with his experience of being a victim of aero-blocking.

In an interview with Frontstretch, Kyle Busch expressed frustration, stating that he believes he could have finished third instead of fourth if not for aero-blocking by Martin Truex Jr. He emphasized, “The aero blocking is just so bad, and everybody knows it and uses it as a defense item.”

During the Wurth 400 at Dover International Speedway, Larson found himself in a thrilling battle with race leader Denny Hamlin. As he closed in on Hamlin in the closing laps, Larson encountered a significant hurdle: dirty air caused by aero blocking. In his own words, “This racing, it’s really hard to pass the lead car. With this car, it’s so easy to aero-block.”

Larson pointed out that one reason aero-blocking is prevalent in the Next Gen car is the presence of rearview cameras. These cameras provide drivers with a clear view of what’s happening behind them, making it easier to react and strategically block their competitors. Larson suggested that removing these cameras could be a simple solution to address aero-blocking.
