What’s Happening?

It appears that wet weather equipment is coming to Bristol Motor Speedway. Bob Pockrass reports that NASCAR has notified the teams to install defoggers on their cars for the upcoming race at Bristol Motor Speedway on March 17th. This would be the same wet weather package that NASCAR had prepared for the LA Coliseum, which only includes rain tires and defoggers, but no wipers or rain flaps.

  • NASCAR has been slowly implementing wet weather equipment into the sport since the mid-2010s. Originally designed for road courses, NASCAR also started using wet weather tires and equipment on short tracks in 2023. The Truck Series used the equipment at Martinsville in the spring, and the Cup Series used it during the All-Star Heat Races at North Wilkesboro.
  • NASCAR tested a wet weather package at Bristol Motor Speedway right after the Clash at the Coliseum. NASCAR initially decided not to implement the wet weather package at Bristol in 2023 due to the high banks and high-speed nature of the track. Now, NASCAR seems set to use them.
  • Fans are interested to see if NASCAR has to use this equipment. Bristol is notorious for bad weather in the springtime.
