NASCAR amends pit procedures for Atlanta


NASCAR has made two pit highway procedural adjustments forward of the Cup and Xfinity Collection races this weekend at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

First, one minute has been added to the broken car coverage (DVP) clock. Within the Xfinity Collection, groups will now have seven minutes to make repairs to their automobiles after an incident. Within the Cup Collection, groups will now have eight minutes.

The DVP clock begins when a car enters pit highway after an on-track incident and stops when the car crosses the exit of pit highway. Groups should make repairs within the allotted time, and when the drivers return to the monitor, they have to meet minimal velocity.

Additionally adjusted for this weekend is pit highway velocity. There might be two completely different speeds relying on the place a driver is positioned.

Pit highway velocity below inexperienced flag situations:

  • P1 to P3 (sections 1 and a couple of of pit highway) might be 90mph.
  • P3 to P20 (sections 3 by 18 of pit highway) might be 45mph.

Pit highway velocity below warning situations:

  • 45mph your entire size of pit highway from Flip 3 to the white dedication line on the exit of pit highway close to Flip 1.

NASCAR made the latter change to assist hold drivers from going a lap down. Atlanta Motor Speedway is a superspeedway-style racetrack, and the dedication line to pit highway is the doorway to Flip 3. Within the spring, drivers who made pit stops below green-flag situations misplaced a lap due to having to run the slower pit highway velocity whereas on the apron in Turns 3 and 4 coming to pit highway.
