NASCAR officials met with drivers, owners and crew chiefs Saturday afternoon at Chicagoland Speedway to address revisions that will take effect beginning with today’s opening race of the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup. The revisions are designed to help competitors understand what is acceptable and what is not acceptable to the sanctioning body during race events.
“Today’s technical bulletin addresses the subject of team(s) artificially altering the outcome of a race and the level of reaction that this will receive from NASCAR,” said Robin Pemberton, NASCAR Vice President of Competition. “We reinforced this issue to the teams in our meeting earlier today and conveyed what is considered unacceptable in our officiating of the event.”
The revisions include a new restriction to just one spotter per team on the spotters’ stand. That’s potter will be allowed two analog radios, a scanner and a Fan View. Video cameras will be installed on spotters’ stand to monitor interaction between spotters.
