NASCAR announced Monday that the sport will undergo changes off the track that the sanctioning body hopes will improve the racing on the track.
Three of the sport’s executives said Monday that in an attempt to improve the core product they have launched a wide-ranging initiative intended to “transform its Competition model.” The changes will come in four key areas: Governance, Rules, Deterrence / Penalties and Officiating / Inspection.
“This really started back in May or June of last year with Brian (NASCAR CEO Brian France) asking NASCAR to really lead in the technology and innovation space,” said Steve O’Donnell, NASCAR senior vice president of racing operations. MORE>>>
