Could single-car qualifying be on the way out for NASCAR? It’s now possible, per a competition meeting at NASCAR’s Research & Development Center in Charlotte held Thursday.
One of the items discussed was the potential elimination of single-car qualifying and a shift to a group format, similar to what is now in use for NASCAR’s road courses.
That would be implemented at all tracks except Daytona and Talladega. The two restrictor plate tracks would feature a 45-50 minute open session where drafting would be possible.
“Nothing (is) in stone yet,” Kerry Tharp, NASCAR’s senior director of competition communications, said in a NASCAR.com report. “We believe it would provide a much more enjoyable experience for the fans who are not only at the track, but those who are watching as well.”
