NASCAR may overhaul qualifying

by KIX 101.1/ 1230 KFJB Sports Department posted Oct 25 2013 9:56AM

NASCAR told its competitors Thursday it is considering eliminating single-car qualifying next season in an overhaul to how the field is set.

 

Drivers from all three national series met with top NASCAR officials for almost two hours at the R&D Center in Concord to discuss several things under consideration for 2014.

 

Among the ideas being considered is a group qualifying format similar to what was used on road courses this year.

 

NASCAR is considering using that qualifying procedure everywhere except Daytona at Talladega. NASCAR spokesman Kerry Tharp says the field would likely be set at Daytona and Talladega with an "open qualifying session" that would allow for a 60-minute drafting session.

 

NASCAR will also hold a Dec. 9 test at Charlotte to continue work on its intermediate track package.
