  • #13 Crew Chief Bootie Barker explains flaring the skirt out:
    Q) "How does the post-race inspection process work with the body - specifically with the "flare" on the right side, side skirt by the wheel well? I race on a short-track level, and our officials would never let that through tech."
    Barker: "We flare the skirt out to increase the car's downforce and side force. They're big hitters on just planting the car more. I use the term "capability." A car has two limitations on how fast it can go: the driver and its capability. When you flare out the sides like that, you're adding downforce, you're adding capability to the car. It can physically run faster because it sticks more. How can we get away with it? NASCAR's not blind. They know we're doing it. You have to go through initial inspection in a certain way, and for whatever reason, they have deemed it acceptable for us to do those things during the race and we aren't suffering the consequences afterwards. Now, will they one day go, 'This has gotten ridiculous and we have to stop this?' That's really their decision, and we won't know what that "too far" is until one of us does it. So, that's what happens. We just keep pushing the limit until somebody kind of establishes what the limit is."(see full interview at NASCAR Illustrated)(1-3-2015)

KMC Wheels is a brand of Wheel Pros, which has multi-disciplinary sponsorships encompassing nearly the entire sport of auto racing, as well as off-road truck racing. The relationship with Germain Racing and Casey Mears will be their first full-time sponsorship effort in the sport of NASCAR and will serve to complement their current programs, while also expanding their reach among the racing world.
