NASCAR has come out to cut the purse of all races in all three series by 10%.

Some of the drugs in the banned substance list are:

Aamphetamine, methamphetamine, Ecstasy, hydromorphone, methadone, morphine, oxycodonem lorazepam (Ativan), oxazapam (Serax), temazepam (Restoril), carisoprodol (Soma), and meprobamate (Miltown, Meprospan)

NASCAR has come out with two changes to pit road rules:

  1. A driver can no longer speed down pit road to avoid being lapped.
  2. A driver will not be penalized if he or she crosses the pit-road commitment line under green but then the yellow flag comes out before the driver hits the pit-road entrance line where the green/red light is located.
