From Wednesday’s NASCAR AMERICA, Kelli Stavast and Slugger Labbe discuss how to cool down cars under the new qualifying rules.

Labbe explains that teams are no longer allowed to open the hoods to cool the engines, and elaborates on how drivers and crew members will work around the new rule.

    The easiest way to let the monstrous amount of heat out of these aero sealed engine bays is to let that hood be opened.

    There has to be a way to let those hoods be opened and the team members controlled in a way that assures the rules will be followed.

    We all knew this year would be a new battle to get these new rules and the new conditions all worked out.

    I hope everyone involved works together and it will go as well and as fast as can expected.

    There are races to win,folks!
