Qual format changing for restrictor plate superspeedways
TALLADEGA, Ala. — The fiascos at Daytona Beach during qualifying for the Daytona 500 and at Talladega Superspeedway in October 2014 led to NASCAR making changes for the formats of all three major divisions.
This morning, NASCAR announced that drivers will go out in solo runs. Unlike in the past, though, the drivers will only get one lap instead of two.
There will be two rounds, with the top 12 drivers advancing to the final round after a 10-minute break.
NASCAR said it reserves the right to have multiple cars qualifying at the same time.
