Scott Miller explains the change to the NASCAR splitter inspection process
In the first practice session at Dover International Speedway a few teams had some issues getting through tech inspection. That was partially due to a change in the inspection process.
NASCAR is going to greater lengths to make sure the front splitter is in compliance with the rule book. A few teams might have found a way around the old tech process, so NASCAR adjusted the inspection to prevent that.
“The splitter is one of the key elements of the car from an aerodynamic perspective,” NASCAR Senior VP of Competition, Scott Miller explains on ‘The Morning Drive’ via Sirius XM NASCAR Radio.
“The rules are that the splitters have to be flat and not have any radiuses on it. It’s a hard thing to check across 40 cars. It takes a little bit of time.”
