Currently serving as a racing analyst on Fox Sports, McReynolds spoke on where he sees NASCAR heading in the coming 5 years. He said:
“I do think the sport is very healthy. Especially as we look across the horizon. Just think about all the young talent that we have right now. Think about Ty Gibbs and what he’s doing in the ARCA and the Xfinity Series. We know he’s probably going to be in the Cup Series in five years or so.”
McReynolds added that Hendrick Motorsports will continue to build up as the team to have the most Cup wins and surpass 300 Cup Series win. He expects the Next Gen series to stay for at least four years and after which it would be replaced by a new engine, possibly a hybrid.
The former chief crew also expects new manufactures to come into the sports and the sports will feature new tracks or even street courses.
