Saving time in the pits is critical to a successful day at the track. But when making their way down pit road, NASCAR drivers must adhere to a speed limit (plus a 5 mile per hour “buffer”) or face a crippling penalty that can keep them out of Victory Lane.
And in NASCAR, drivers have to keep to that speed limit without using a speedometer that we have in our everyday road cars.
But in today’s Xerox 30 Seconds To Know, NASCAR on NBC analyst and Sprint Cup driver Jeff Burton explains how they’re able to stay within the limit – and not have NASCAR officials lower the boom on them.
