NASCAR will now disqualify winners that fail post-race inspection

"I think for us, we're really looking at a total culture change", NASCAR Executive Vice President Steve O'Donnell stated.

NASCAR officials were mum early in the offseason about specific changes to the Cup qualifying format but acknowledged that it was under consideration.

According to Speed Sport, NASCAR has announced on Monday that if you fail a post-race inspection - and you won the race - you will be disqualified.

Monday's announcement marks a dramatic change from the long-standing rule previously in place that penalised an offending race victor with fines, suspensions and/or points deductions, but still allowed the victory to stand.

Inspections will now be completed at the track, a process that should take about 90 minutes, and the winning team will lose its victory if it fails. Nevertheless, although uncommon, it has occurred in the past, most notably during the sanctioning body's inaugural race in 1949 when winner Glenn Dunnaway was disqualified for rear spring violations and Jim Roper was named the victor.

Should the first-place vehicle be disqualified, the second-place auto would become the victor of the event and receive all benefits from the victory. NASCAR said it will now eject team members, dock practice time and, in an enhanced penalty, bar a auto from trying to qualify for the race if it fails three times. Those behind the penalised will improve by one position, meaning runners-up could be the race winner if the original victor is disqualified.

"We've been through a deterrence model where we've really worked with the race teams at the track and probably been more lenient than we should in terms of the number of times teams can go through inspection and pass, fail and there's nearly incentive to try to get something by NASCAR, so we want to really reverse that trend".

For the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, NASCAR Xfinity Series and NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series, the first round of knockout qualifying will be reduced from 15 minute to 10 minutes. They will now take place immediately following the chequered flag instead of midweek at the NASCAR research & development centre. The tier system will also be retained for such situations. "The scrutineering of the vehicles, whether it be trucks or cars, those are the things our inspectors will be living with all weekend".

Exclusively for NASCAR Gander Outdoor Truck Series drivers - Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series drivers are not eligible. The length of the second (10 minutes) and third (five minutes) knockout rounds remains unchanged. The final round will stay at five minutes.

At every national-series track next season, the down-time intervals between rounds will be trimmed from seven minutes to five. The top 12 advance in the two-round format. The road courses will also keep the two-round, 25- and 10-minute rounds like in previous years.

"We're going to move forward". With the other two NASCAR series in different cities those weeks, it allows the best of the Truck Series to battle for the big money bonuses.

Scheduled for the Texas Motor Speedway, Iowa Speedway, and Gateway Motorsports Park rounds in June, whoever wins any of the three races will earn $50,000. If the same driver wins all three races, he or she pockets $500,000. A second victory will be worth $150,000 and a sweep is worth $500,000.

Ben Kennedy, the great-grandson of NASCAR founder Bill France Sr., will expand his leadership in the family business in 2019, becoming the managing director of racing operations and global development. "There's no qualifying ahead of time or any of that". At the superspeedways, teams participated in qualifying one auto at a time with just a single timed lap per round. "It focuses on winning".

In addition, Cup Series points-scoring drivers cannot compete in any Dash 4 Cash or Triple Truck Challenge races, nor can they run the regular-season finale or playoff races in either division.
