NASCAR announced a new qualifying format for its top three touring series Wednesday.  Cars will now have two or three session depending on track size in 2014. The field will be whittled down to 12 cars in the final session while slower cars will be knocked out of the top starting spots. The move is expected to bring a great deal of excitement to NASCAR qualifying. Shortly after the announcement, NASCAR’s Vice President of Competition and Racing Development Robin Pemberton held a teleconference with members of the media. Below is the transcript of that interview.
