No pit road speed limit..........

No pit road speed for Qualifying in All-Star race: Speeding on pit road is now legal -- at least in qualifying for Saturday's Sprint All-Star race. In an attempt to spice up qualifying, pit road speeds that are strictly enforced in races as a safety measure will be lifted for Friday night's three-lap trip around Charlotte Motor Speedway that includes a mandatory four-time stop. Other cars will not be on pit road during All-Star qualifying, and crew members will not be allowed to come over the wall until the car is stopped, which is not the case in a race.(ESPN)(5-15-2013)

If this another idea from Bruton Smith.......he's been thinking to hard, the brain cells are burning up!
Sorry excuse for NOOOOOOOOOO Pit Crew challenge ! :roll: :roll: :(

i agree with mj.

I don't see how this is going to "spice" things up though. NASCAR isn't going to draw new fans to watch qualifying coverage because there isn't a pit road speed limit.

The real question is, will someone make a mistake on pit road driving too fast because they can? Slide completely through the pit box is a smaller mistake, how about crashing into the pit wall though?

I agree. I think they did this to get the crews involved since the challenge was cancelled. They threw the crews a bone. :?

Re: No pit road speed limit..........

It was interesting watching the craziness for sure. Marcos Ambrose was a train wreck but I understand he hadn't driven the car prior to the qualifying run.

I liked the emphasis on the pit crew guys but it still wasn't enough for me. Bring back the pit crew challenge. These guys deserve the opportunity to showcase their talent, bag some extra coin and give their driver the coveted pit stall.

Re: No pit road speed limit..........

Well I think NASCAR should sponsor the pit crew challenge next year if no one steps up. After all, they've had a record year in fines and we're not even half way through the season. Put those fines to good use!

The qualifying was most excellent, but it does not make up for the pit crew challenge...

Re: No pit road speed limit..........

Once I watched it, the new qualifying format was pretty cool. 8-) But I agree with others, I'd like to see the pit crew challange back next year, in addition to this new qualifying format. :D :D

Re: No pit road speed limit..........

the pit crew challenge they held indoors was lame, it was better in the 80's and 90's when it was held outside at The Rock.
