NASCAR to impound cars next year at Daytona

NASCAR announced recently that it will impound the cars following Cup qualifying at about two-thirds of its tracks this season and keep them from the teams until just before the start of the races. Only minor adjustments, made under NASCAR supervision, will be allowed and the cars will have to start on the same tires and with the same fuel load with which they qualified. Now there are rumors sweeping through the garages at Daytona International Speedway that NASCAR will do the same next year before the Daytona 500, holding the cars from the end of qualifying on Sunday until the start of the 150-mile qualifying races the following Thursday. ''That's one of the options we're looking at, but it's too early to tell what we're going to do for next year,'' NASCAR spokesman Jim Hunter said. AP Story
