Underglow Lighting Added to Cars Locked Into All-Star Race

Underglow lighting will be added to cars already locked into the NASCAR Cup Series All-Star Race, NASCAR announced Thursday (July 9).

Chip Ganassi Racing first used the underglow lights at last year’s Burnouts on Broadway event during Champion’s Week in Nashville.

Other changes to the All-Star Race include a choose rule, in which drivers will pick which lane they want to be in before a restart, and a new paint scheme where the number is moved closer to the rear wheel.

The 2020 All-Star Open on Wednesday, July 15 is set to get under way at 7 p.m. ET, while the All-Star Race is scheduled for 8:30 p.m. ET. Both events will air on Fox Sports 1 and MRN Radio.

Fast and the Furious NASCAR edition. Keep targeting the 16 year olds that won’t watch more than a few races. Just when I think it can’t get any dumber, I am proved wrong.

Oh look, maybe a way to have the car keep running after dark at tracks that don’t have lights lol!

Steve

Good take. Given some of the start times on the schedule, that may actually be true.

Robert

What’s next? 4 cylinders with fart cans? Those wire spokes that stick out a foot or more?
Stupid looking wing on the trunk, oops already did that.

Donna

Agree complety. Ridiculous Nascar! I thought i would try watching another race…but not happening after seeing this!!!

David

Generally speaking I’m in favor of anything that can bring younger fans to stock car racing. The aging of the fanbase spells doom unless they are able to reverse the trend.

That said this is just ridiculous. Only my opinion.

Just another gimmick in a long list. So desperate. Stay tuned. There will be more.

I was quick to say I didn’t think using the cone to line up on restarts was a gimmick.

Lights under the car is nothing but a gimmick. Although it might be cool to see for a couple of minutes. Hell, the All Star race has always been a gimmick in itself. Why not go all out.

It’s right up there with the glowing puck.
