  • No timetable, but fuel injection on the table: NASCAR officials talked to teams this month about the possibility of using fuel injection instead of carburetors in the future, a sign many in the garage like. Just when the change could happen is uncertain. Robin Pemberton, NASCAR vice president of competition, said there’s no timetable for it. NASCAR is looking at this now, Pemberton said, because with Ford’s new engines, all of the engines will be similar, and that will make it “easier to regulate from a performance standpoint.” Pemberton also said NASCAR is putting together a group to examine the issue, similar to what they did with the new car and new engine pieces. An important aspect of having fuel injection is that it will have to be, as Pemberton says, “tamper-proof.” NASCAR officials have shied away from such technology previously; in part for fear that teams could somehow tap into it for traction control. Pemberton said no decision has been made on where to introduce fuel injection, whether with Cup or in the Camping World Truck or Nationwide series.(Virginia Pilot)(8-23-2009)
