I don't think so. Daytona and Talladega are the two tracks where you expect the cars to do 200 mph. Would the racing be the same at 175 mph? Probably, but the race would also take more time. With the way the rules are now, the super speedways will be a test of the driver's skills at high speeds. I'm sure Brian France will make some changes as the 500 was such a good race, but there was not the 25-car pile up that some people just have to have.
