NASCAR News Update 6/5/09


Hey fans! Sorry about the lack of stories over the last few days. We had an issue with the site, but thanks to Zach and the Fansided team, it’s back up and running now. Here are some news updates from the last few days.

Double-file restarts are being introduced to NASCAR beginning this weekend at Pocono. They will be introduced into the Nationwide and Truck Series in the near future. All restart rules are the same as what you saw in Tuesday’s article, with one exception:

-Lapped cars will be eligible to receive a lap back via the Lucky Dog throughout the race, including the last 10 laps.

Drivers are losing faith in many things about NASCAR these days, so it was only a matter of time before NASCAR’s appeal system joined in on the fun. After losing his appeal on Tuesday, Carl Long said about the system, “I have lost all faith in the way the appeal system works.” Add the appeal system to the “doubted” list where it will join the CoT, and today’s competition.

Finally, the 5th annual Prelude to the Dream charity race was postponed due to rain. It has been rescheduled for September 9th. Whether it will be televised on pay-per-view, Speed, or even at all remains to be seen. And yes, everyone who ordered it on pay-per-view will be given a full refund.
