CM – NASCAR joins the next generation Superspeedway package

0

NASCAR has confirmed that Cup Series teams will put out 510hp with a 7-inch spoiler in the Daytona, Talladega and Atlanta Motor Speedway Superspeedway races this season.

Officials closed the package before the end of the first day of a two-day next-gen test at Daytona International Speedway. While most teams spent their time doing single car runs or drawing with a teammate, NASCAR organized a 10-lap design session at 2 p.m. ET, in which 17 drivers took part. There were no problems with the pack during this run.

John Probst, NASCAR Senior Vice President of Racing Innovation, described it as the racing that everyone in Daytona and Talladega and soon in newly paved and re-profiled Atlanta is getting used to has. The speeds also hit the target NASCAR was looking for.

« We saw today – there is no trophy, no points, no money so I think the intensity will increase significantly when we return – but I think when you look at the cars. ”to be able to spread out, regroup, move around, definitely a few threesomes. Probst said.

During the design session, teams ranged from 187 mph to 189 mph. Earlier this month, three cars took part in a Goodyear tire test in Atlanta, which saw speeds between 181 and 183 mph .

It remains to be seen whether the race on March 20th in Atlanta will be held differently than in previous years, as it will be more like a Superspeedway race. The route has recently been repaved in addition to other significant changes. The lean angle increased to 28 degrees and the race area narrowed from 55 feet to 40 feet.

A notable rule in Daytona and Talladega is the yellow line, or the run-off area. Probst had no definitive answer on whether this would carry over to Atlanta and said discussions about this race week are only now beginning.

All three series participated in the Goodyear tire test in Atlanta. Kurt Busch, Ross Chastain and Chris Buescher were the three drivers in the Cup Series.

« The lines and the like are currently being discussed based on the feedback from the drivers during this test, » said Probst.

There will be two more at the start of the season PS packages used in the Cup series. Aside from the 510 hp package for Superspeedways, NASCAR announced a change to 670 hp with a four-inch spoiler for all other events on December 21st.
