One of the first steps towards the 2014 NASCAR Sprint Cup season took place Tuesday as NASCAR delivered the 2014 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series rules package to race teams.

Changes to the package include statically setting the race car ride height and eliminating the pre- and post-race front height rules and inspections. Several teams were penalized for ride heights in both pre-race and post-race inspections.

“It was important to get the final pieces of the rules package to teams as quickly as possible following the final tests last week,” said Gene Stefanyshyn, NASCAR vice president of innovation and racing development. “Throughout the process, we gained valuable data that informed many of the changes for 2014. This data will prove useful as we continue to evolve the racing product into the future.” MORE>>>
