NASCAR's Sprint Cup Series hits Kentucky Speedway this week, with the Quaker State 400. The biggest thing about this weekends race in-particular, is the new rule changes. This will be the very first race that they will be a part of. The rules in short, are all about passing. More specifically, they are intend to help the driver make a smoother transition while passing. Considering just how fast these vehicles are moving and weaving in and out of each other, the more help the better. The new guidelines include regulations of spoiler height. They take it down from 6 inches to 3.5 inches and the front splitter overhand by 1.75 inches. That's almost completely in half. Makes you wonder if this works well, why hasn't it been caught before. Some of the worlds best auto engineers look over these cars with insane precision. Either way, hopefully it helps to keep the cars under better control.
