NASCAR Unveils Plans for Nationwide Car

Jim BobCorrespondent IOctober 9, 2009

NASCAR said today that they plan to run the new Nationwide Series car in four points races in the 2010 Nationwide Series.  The new car will be run at July 2 race at Daytona International Speedway followed by the Aug. 14 event at Michigan International Speedway, the Sept. 10 race at Richmond International Raceway and at Lowe’s Motor Speedway on Oct. 15.  The decision on the schedule was decided after NASCAR consulted with the teams in the Nationwide Series.

“There was a lot of good dialogue shared with the teams during that meeting,” said Robin Pemberton, NASCAR’s vice president of competition. “We’ve taken the time to review the information that was shared in the meeting and develop a schedule that we believe will provide the teams with the best possible opportunity to prepare for the rollout of the new car.

“This four-race schedule gives the teams experience on a wide variety of ovals, in addition to a superspeedway.”

The new car will be run full-time in the 2011 season.
