Default More rule tweaks for restrictor-plate races

More rule tweaks for restrictor-plate races

Image by Logan Whitton/LAT178 sharessharetweetemailBy: Kelly Crandall | 10 hours ago
A Wednesday bulletin sent to Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series teams outlined rule changes for the season’s three remaining restrictor-plate races.

The rear spoiler will be increased to 9 inches (from , and NASCAR officials have also mandated a 1-inch bolt on track bar mount to change the height to 12 inches. With the latter change, it will raise the rear of the car, which teams were running as low as possible since NASCAR eliminated the minimum ride height rule at the superspeedways before the start of the 2018 season:

These changes are to bring speeds back down to a safe range after a two-day February test at Daytona produced speeds higher than what NASCAR wanted with the new rules package. Daniel Hemric, Kyle Larson, and Alex Bowman participated in the test.

Officials do not expect the style of racing to change at Daytona (which the series visits again in July) or the two Talladega races (in April and October).

Cup series Chevrolet, Ford, Toyota into the wind tunnel

A month into the season, NASCAR announced it will take six Monster Energy Cup Series cars in for wind tunnel testing.

Officials announced Sunday night after the O’Reilly Auto Parts 500 at Texas Motor Speedway they had selected two cars from each manufacturer. Texas was the third 1.5-mile event of the seven races run this season.

The cars collected were the Toyota Camrys of Martin Truex Jr. and Erik Jones; the Chevrolet Camaros of Kurt Busch and William Byron; and the Ford Mustangs of Kevin Harvick and Paul Menard.

NASCAR tweaks qualifying again for Richmond

Image by Nigel Kinrade/LAT344 sharessharetweetemailBy: Kelly Crandall | 20 hours ago
Qualifying for Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series teams at Richmond will now feature three five-minute rounds NASCAR announced Thursday.

The first two rounds had been 10 minutes in length, but NASCAR said in its memo to race teams that the change was “in an effort to improve the quality of our qualifying broadcast.”

Per NASCAR, the changes — which are only for the Cup Series — are not permanent and will be for this weekend only. Discussions are ongoing about additional changes.

Qualifying for the Toyota Owners 400 is scheduled to take place Friday evening.

More NASCAR!

CRANDALL: When 15th is as good as a win

The sport has been fighting issues with qualifying much of the season. With the new aero package, no driver has wanted to be the one leading the way on the larger tracks to provide a draft to the competition. That led to none of the final 12 drivers getting a timed lap in at Fontana.

NASCAR has also been unhappy about drivers blocking pit road or sitting at the exit of pit road as the clock winds down until the final minutes, with the track left empty as a result.

Default Eight Cup teams fail inspection at Richmond

Eight Cup teams fail inspection at Richmond

Image by Thacker/LAT190 sharessharetweetemailBy: Kelly Crandall | April 13, 2019 2:19 PM
Eight teams, including four that had qualified inside the top 10, failed inspection Saturday afternoon at Richmond Raceway.

The qualifying times for all eight NASCAR Cup Series teams were disallowed and each driver will start at the rear of the field. Three teams failed inspection multiple times and will start at the rear in addition to having their race engineers ejected for tonight’s Toyota Owners 400 (7:30 p.m. ET, FOX).

More NASCAR!

Failing once were the cars of Erik Jones (who qualified second, photo above), Daniel Suarez (ninth), Jimmie Johnson (10th), and Joey Gase (3th). Each team made it through inspection on its second attempt.

Failing inspection twice were the cars of Chase Elliott (who qualified seventh), Denny Hamlin (18th), and Matt Tifft (20th). All three cars passed on their third attempt.

Because they failed inspection, each team picked pit stalls for Saturday night’s race after those who passed inspection.

Default STOCK CAR RACING NASCAR unveils rules, tweaks for All-Star race

NASCAR unveils rules, tweaks for All-Star race

Image by Kinrade/LAT219 sharessharetweetemailBy: Kelly Crandall | April 17, 2019 4:16 PM
NASCAR has unveiled the rules package and format for this year’s All-Star Race, including two features that could be implemented in the Gen-7 car that is scheduled to be rolled out in 2021.

The first technical element is a single-piece carbon fiber splitter that the series says will improve height sensitivity, as well as offering a more stable aero platform that should translate into better performance in traffic.

Cars will also be fitted with a radiator duct that exits through the hood; a move aimed at improving aerodynamic parity and reducing engine temperatures. Currently, the duct exists into the engine compartment.

More NASCAR!

The All-Star Race will continue to be four segments split into 30-20-20-15 laps. In the past, the final segment had been 10 laps in length.

Both green flag laps and those under caution will count during the first three segments. Only green flag laps count in the final segment. In the final segment, there will be an unlimited number of attempts at a green-white-checkered finish.

The Monster Energy Open will be comprised of three segments of 20-20-10 laps. Three drivers will transfer into the All-Star Race by winning one of the segments. A fourth driver will transfer in through the fan vote.

Eligibility for the non-points event is earned through having won races in 2018 and 2019, or being a past All-Star Race winner or Energy NASCAR Cup Series champion.

“Throughout its history, the Monster Energy NASCAR All-Star Race has provided a platform to try new and innovative ideas, some of which we have incorporated on a full-time basis,” said Steve O’Donnell, NASCAR executive vice president and chief racing development officer.

“Last year’s All-Star rules package resulted in one of the most exciting all-star races in history. With a similar package, and added elements that we could see in the next generation race car, we expect another must-watch event.”
