With new rules for Kentucky, NASCAR promises to improve overtaking

A new rule package announced by NASCAR for the round of next month at Kentucky Speedway promises to improve overtaking and allow closer racing.

After 18 months of testing a number of important changes as: more adhesive tires, a lower front spoiler and a lower rear wing will be implemented.

These changes will force pilots to slow down longer cornering, thanks to the reduced downforce. So it expects to increase overtaking.


An extra workout on Wednesday before the race will enable teams to work on the new change settings.

Initially these new rules will be valid only for Kentucky, where the quality of racing has been criticized since joining the calendar in the series of 2011, the executive vice president of NASCAR Steve O ‘ Donnell didn’t rule out using the package in other lanes if successful.
