There’s been a slight change the NASCAR rulebook for 2023; Underwear brand comments
The 2023 NASCAR season is set to begin. There’s already been a few minor rule changes ahead of the new season.
Back in December, NASCAR updated the rule book regarding chassis shims. They reduced the allowed thickness of the shims by over 50%.
Now, there’s a new one…
Head socks and or helmet skirts
All of the things above were previously listed as “recommended” in the rule book.
The Hanes twitter account saw an opportunity to ask, “who was racing without socks and underwear??” They added, “NASCAR, we need to know the backstory on this.”
There’s other changes to the rulebook regarding the design of the car. Bars have been removed to create more of a crush zone, this came as the Next Gen car was built safer but too stiff. Those updated were announced last year. NASCAR covered the cost of updating the chassis designs for all teams.
The 2023 NASCAR season begins on February 5th via the Clash at the Coliseum. The regular season begins with the famed Daytona 500 on February 19th.
