Austin Cinderic was to be the revelation of the 2022 season after becoming the first official race winner of the Next Generation cars by winning the iconic Daytona 500edge Bubba Wallace. But the Team Penke Racer failed to live up to expectations as he fell into obscurity in midfield.

He was only able to secure a solo top 10 placement COTA and came close to another top 10 in Martinsville with a P11 result. That being said, it’s been a battle for midfield positions for the rookie, and he’s hoping to change that if NASCAR can achieve that Talladega super speedway this Sunday.

Now Austin Cindric has spoken out and hinted that the Talladega race will be a desperate one for many drivers and he expects a different offset there than at Daytona.

Austin Cindric said there are a number of drivers on the grid who really want to win a race as it can get them a playoff spot. He went on to say that he believes the Talladega race will be a desperate race for drivers aiming for the playoff spots. Austin Cindric went on to say that Talladega has different offsets than Daytona, which doesn’t usually come into play that much.

There are a lot of guys in the field who really want a win because they see it as their only way to make the playoffs. We only have one man with multiple wins (William Byron) so from that standpoint I would see this is already a desperate race with business picking up in the win column‘ said Austin Cindric.

I definitely see that as a mentality standpoint for my competitors, even for me in some phases. Of course, everyone has their own motivation for winning the race, but the way I look at it, Talladega certainly has different ones, and handling offsets doesn’t usually come into play as much as Daytona doesadded Austin Cindric.

Austin Cindric went on to say he’s looking forward to building on what he’s learned from Daytona as he sees them in a position of many strengths when it comes to superspeedways. He added that everyone has an equal chance to do the race but added that it will be interesting to see which team put more effort in learning from the past race.

“I look forward to building on what I learned at Daytona. We obviously had a lot of strengths and we try to build on them. In terms of cars, I’m excited to see where we qualify and what gains we’ve been able to make just by having the cars longer. I think everyone’s kind of in the same boat so it will be interesting to see who did more homework after the first event of the year.” says Austin Cindric.
