NASCAR made a rule change that will apply to race cars in the Sprint Cup and Xfinity series that will be in place in time for the upcoming race weekend at Phoenix International Raceway, the second-to-last race for both series. The sanctioning body detailed the change through a technical bulletin distributed to race teams on Wednesday.
The change affects section 20.14.2.1-1 of the rule book, pertaining to truck trailing arms. The bulletin distributed on Wednesday stated:
“Truck trailing arm mounting slugs may be used to locate the truck trailing arms on the truck trailing arm mounting brackets. If used, truck trailing arm mounting slugs slots must be perpendicular to slots on the truck trailing arm mounting brackets.”
According to a report from FOX Sports, a NASCAR spokesperson said the changes were made in an attempt to keep teams from getting an advantage in side-force.
The new rule will carry over into 2017.
