NASCAR to unveil 2011 car in July

October 11, 2009|Associated Press

The NASCAR Nationwide Series will phase in a new car in 2010, with the cars expected to be used full time during the 2011 season.

The new car will be unveiled at the July race at Daytona International Speedway. It will also be used in races at Michigan, Richmond and Lowe's Motorspeedway before being fully integrated in 2011.

The move comes on the heels of a meeting between owners, crew chiefs and NASCAR officials in July. NASCAR vice president of competition Robin Pemberton said the four races next year will give teams good feedback heading into 2011. NASCAR used a similar plan to roll out the "Car of Tomorrow" on the Sprint Cup circuit in 2007. The car was introduced during the 2007 season and became the official Cup car a year later.
