Trying to squash cheating, NASCAR to disqualify illegal cars

Trying to squash cheating, NASCAR to disqualify illegal cars

Inspections will now be done at tracks immediately following each race.

The last Cup race victor to be disqualified was at Wilson Speedway in 1960, when Emanuel Zervakis was excluded for a large fuel cell and the win handed to Joe Weatherly.

Monday's announcement marks a dramatic change from the long-standing rule previously in place that penalised an offending race victor with fines, suspensions and/or points deductions, but still allowed the victory to stand. The victories usually stood. Disqualified cars will now lose points, purse money and even the trophy. Road-course qualifying will continue to be two rounds at 25 minutes followed by a 10-minute final round.

Scheduled for the Texas Motor Speedway, Iowa Speedway, and Gateway Motorsports Park rounds in June, whoever wins any of the three races will earn $50,000.

NASCAR will also change its process for cars that fail inspection prior to qualifying and the race.

If the race-winning auto is disqualified, and the second-place vehicle clears inspection, the second-place team will be declared the victor and receive all benefits of the win. NASCAR said it will now eject team members, dock practice time and, in an enhanced penalty, bar a vehicle from trying to qualify for the race if it fails three times.

O'Donnell said Kennedy will take ownership of new projects and expand his reach globally to include NASCAR's racing series in Canada, Mexico and Europe.

Paul Pogba was also sent off late on to complicate matters further for United , who will now be without him for the second leg. If you tease him, it does not make him weaker. 90 more minutes are missing To continue working for what is coming.

Qualifying at superspeedways (Daytona and Talladega) will remain two untimed rounds of single-lap qualifying. NASCAR is courting additional manufacturers to join the sport and the Gen-7 auto will aim to increase brand identity.

"Just as NASCAR is driving strategies focused on the long-term growth of the sport, we are taking the same approach with our Truck Series event", Blair said.

"I think you will see a new NASCAR in terms of what you may see on the track and what you may see under the hood", O'Donnell said.

"It's neat in the sense that it's a little bit different", NASCAR Managing Director of Racing Operations and International Development and former Truck race victor Ben Kennedy said.

Kennedy, 27, was named managing director of the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series one year ago.

- NASCAR confirmed that its participation guidelines will be virtually unchanged from their look last season, with drivers boasting more than five years of full-time Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series experience limited to seven Xfinity Series races and five Truck races. China remains a targeted market for NASCAR. Winning two races will net a driver $150,000 total ($50,000 per race plus a $50,000 bonus), while winning all three races will result in a $500,000 total prize ($50,000 per race win, $50,000 bonus for winning twice, plus a $300,000 bonus for sweeping the Challenge races). A round sweep will notch $500,000.
