NASCAR frowns on slicing wraps

Over the last couple of seasons, NASCAR has taken a stance against in-race unapproved modifications, but to this point, enforcement and resulting penalties have been, for the most part, limited to flaring side skirts to gain aerodynamic advantages. But with NASCAR dropping the hammer on pit crew members pulling out a corner of the side skirt on their cars, apparently, some teams have resorted to cutting the wraps used to adorn the cars and flaring out the cut edges.

In recent years, most teams in the Sprint Cup Series garage have transitioned from painting their race cars to applying wraps.

“I want to take this moment to remind everyone that’s been on the book for quite awhile now, rule 10-7-1, in-race violations,” Sprint Cup Series Director Richard Buck told drivers and crew chiefs during the drivers’ meeting at Kentucky Speedway in Sparta, prior to Saturday’s Quaker State 400, and was quoted by NBC Sports. “Unapproved vehicle modifications will not be permitted in an event. This includes but is not limited to pulling the side skirts, deforming the side of the car, manipulating the body and/or any other parts, including slicing the vehicle wrap, right-rear corner A post. Nowhere slicing the vehicle wraps will be permitted.”

With the enforcement of the rule prohibitting such in-race modifications, the penalties for slicing and flaring cars’ wraps will mirror the penalties for flaring side skirts. For modifications under caution, the penalty will be pit stops for repairs, restarting in the back and a drive-through penalty under green. For green-flag modifications, the penalty will be a NASCAR-mandated pit stop for repairs under green.
