05.01.2007: Tomorrow is today

Things to see in '07 NASCAR

Toyota's Nextel Cup debut: Toyota's entry into Nextel Cup in 2007 represents the first full-time foreign manufacturer in NASCAR's top-tier series. How will Toyota fare in its first season?

Car of Tomorrow phase-in: NASCAR's vision of the racing chassis of the future is scheduled to make its debut at Bristol in March, the first of 16 races in 2007, followed by 26 more in 2008. With built-in safety features and the ability to run at multiple tracks with a minimum of modifications, NASCAR officials believe the Car of Tomorrow will save teams money over the long term.

. The return of ABC/ESPN: Much has been made of the new television contract, which takes effect in 2007. NASCAR says so long to NBC and returns to ABC and ESPN for the first time in six seasons.

The future of the Busch Series: With Anheuser-Busch's long-time sponsorship of NASCAR's No. 2 series ending with the 2007 season, there are a number of questions left to be answered.
