thanks . I was trying to find the race on Tv about 2 hours earlier....:rolleyes:
 
What kind of adjustments are they making? I've been seeing this a lot.
The cars were impounded after qualifying so anything beyond air pressure and some suspension settings is an unapproved adjustment. Reddick's crew fitted a new steering rack. Hemric's crew was working on the transaxle cooling system and replaced lines. Custer's team found an issue with an engine part during warmup per Bob Pockrass.
 
Will be interesting if more teams start running up front as they figure this new car out.
Saw that last week with the 43, 47, and 99 cars up in the fight. I had assumed Penske would have an early advantage with this car being so similar to a V8 Supercar.

Wow. That seems a bit extreme to me. I can understand them wanting fair competition, but if they find an honest issue with the car, they ought to be allowed to tend to it.

The races are long enough that they should be able to recover. Plus when there is an issue with one of the faster cars you can watch them carve through the backmarkers.
 
🟨 Caution, lap 65. 8 car spins off 4 through the infield. The 78 is the beneficiary, he is 2 laps down and will get one lap back.
