Attention Teams - New Rules for Halfway Break
Tuesday, May 01 2012 @ 07:08 AM EDT
With the recent announcement of the omission of pit stops at all CARS Pro Cup races I would like to notify team owners, drivers and crew chiefs that during the red/black flag period crew members working on the car MUST be in a fire suit with helmet. Teams will be limited to FIVE crew members to go over the wall. All crew members MUST remain behind pit wall until ALL race cars are on pit road and stopped in their pit boxes. CARS Pro Cup officials will signal when crew members will be allowed over the wall. All rules per the rule book will apply for pit stops made at anytime during the course of the race. Also, during this period all drivers MUST remain inside the race car. Helmet and safety buckles may be removed. Additional rules changes will be addressed at the Driver/Crew Chief Meeting at Orange County Speedway during the May 5th event, followed by a Q&A session.
