Pit road speed limits in force for qualifying

NASCAR will begin enforcing pit road speeds during qualifying starting this weekend at Auto Club Speedway. NASCAR announced the change today in a memo it sent out to teams. The memo, sent by Senior Vice President of Competition Scott Miller, dictates how teams will be penalized if drivers exceed the speed limit.

• If a competitor exceeds pit road speed exiting onto the track, the vehicle must return to pit road before being eligible to post a qualifying time.

• If a competitor exceeds pit road speed returning to pit road the time/or times posted on that run will be disallowed.
