Let's get some views on how the racing will go this weekend.  Some drivers think maybe problems and others say no problem with the new safer walls.  I think it will be an adjustment and maybe create some problems initially.  What do all of you think?

I don't think the SAFER barriers will cause more accidents, but they are taking up 26 inches of the former racing surface.  My fear is that we may not see the 2-wide racing that we always see at Darlington.  Also the drivers depended on driving right up against the wall where it used to be.  Now, we don't know how the SAFER barrier will react when drivers do that.  

I just worry that this change could turn Darlington into a boring race like we saw last week at Atlanta.
