NASCAR Allows Sprint Cup Series Teams To Open Air Inlets

Sun Feb 20, 2011 3:59 am

got this from Jayski

NASCAR is letting NASCAR Sprint Cup Series teams open up their air inlet openings some for Daytona 500 - going from a 2 1/2 x 20-inch opening to a 3 x 20-inch opening. With continued warm weather forecast for Sunday, this move gives teams more air to cool their engines.(NASCAR)(2-20-2011)

Makes me wonder how much fabrication and expense the teams have to go through this week every time NASCAR changes its' mind on what the rules are. First the openings have to be made smaller, then they can be bigger. If I was a car owner I'd really be tempted to slap around the NASCAR powers-that-be and say "Enough! Make up your #### minds!"

I have a feeling there will be some trial and error on the part of NASCAR as to what they will allow as to what will work and what will not in the first couple of months of race season with all new changes that they have made.
