NASCAR has taken significant steps toward improving on-track competition for events, releasing new aerodynamic regulations for its flagship Sprint Car Series GEN-6 race cars during the off-season. NASCAR wants to make it easier for cars to pass each other and reduce the aerodynamic advantage the leading car has over the car behind it.
These changes have been apparent this season in producing some exciting NASCAR Sprint Cup Series racing. There have been nine different winners in the first 11 races in 2014.
The speeds are expected to remain fast at MIS again in 2014. After a two-day Goodyear tire test in May, the results proved the blazing speeds were sure to continue.
Last year, Joey Logano posted a track qualifying mark of 203.949 mph for the Pure Michigan 400. The speed was ninth-fastest pole-winning speed in NASCAR Sprint Cup Series history and the fastest pole-winning speed other than Talladega Superspeedway and Daytona International Speedway. Greg Biffle pulled into victory lane for the Quicken Loans 400 while Logano took the checkered flag for the Pure Michigan 400 in 2013.
