According to a report on Tuesday from, ongoing discussions between NASCAR and team owners include consideration of reducing the number of pit crew members going over the wall from six to five. If the decision is made to reduce the number of crew members going over the wall during pit stops, the change could go into effect next season.

NASCAR last reduced the number of crew members going over the wall in 2011, cutting the number from seven to six, but that decrease was closer to clear-cut. It coincided with the new and current fueling system that eliminated the need for a catch-can person, so the elimination of the need for one of the positions made reconfiguring pit-stop choreography relatively easy, only necessitating reconsideration of which crew member(s) would make wedge and/or track bar adjustments. Those adjustments previously were made by the catch-can person on most race teams.

The popular assumption is that one of the two tire carrier positions will be eliminated. A popular line-up of two tire carriers began in the mid-1990s.

The possible changes are assumed to be an effort to reduce the cost of an additional team member and increase safety through each team having one less individual over the wall.
