NASCAR moves up Watkins Glen drivers’ meeting

NASCAR will push the start of the driver/crew chief back to only one hour before the start of Sunday's Sprint Cup race at Watkins Glen. The driver/crew chief meeting will take place at 1:00pm/et. The start time listed for the race is 2:00pm/et. Typically, the driver/crew chief meeting is held two hours before the start of the race.

NASCAR states that this is an experiment for this weekend to create a shorter window between the meeting and driver introductions, which are scheduled to begin at 1:30pm/et. The driver/crew chief meeting often lasts between five and 10 minutes, depending on the number of dignitaries introduced and questions from competitors. After dignitaries are introduced, competitors watch a video outlining various rules for the race and can ask questions afterward. NBC Sports
