NASCAR Announces “Double-File Restarts – Shootout Style”: NASCAR announced a change to its race format with the addition of “Double-File Restarts – Shootout Style” throughout each race. Beginning with this weekend at Pocono Raceway, the first- and second-place drivers will line up side-by-side as the green flag flies for each restart. “We’ve heard the fans loud and clear: ‘double-file restarts – shootout style’ are coming to the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series,” said NASCAR Chairman and CEO Brian France. “This addition to the race format is good for competition and good for the fans.”
NASCAR recently used the “double-file” format for its non-points NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race, which produced an unpredictable finish. The format will be adapted for the NASCAR Nationwide Series and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series in the near future. Under the previous format, cars on the lead lap would restart in a single-file line while cars that had been lapped would start in a line next to them. Under the new format, the race leader will have the option to restart on the inside or outside lane. The second-place driver would then restart next to the leader. Regardless of where the leader starts, drivers in odd number positions (3rd, 5th, 7th places, etc.) will restart on the inside lane, while drivers in even number positions (4th, 6th, 8th places, etc.) will restart on the outside. All restarts will use the same format regardless of the number of laps remaining in the race.
The first-place driver will continue to control the timing of restarts in a designated zone on the track. Likewise, cars are to stay in line until they reach the start/finish line. The first eligible car a lap or more down will continue to earn one lap back following a caution, which is known as the “free pass.” However, a new element beginning this week will be that the “free pass” will remain in effect the entire race [before it was all race until 10 or less laps to go, then none was awarded]. Lapped cars choosing to remain on the track will be “waved around” the caution car and will restart the race in respective track position, thus picking up a lap to the leader provided the leader also pits. This will also remove lapped cars from behind the pace car, allowing the leaders to take the green without interference [so the leader will not restart in the middle of the pack

Qualifying rained out Cope, Raines, and Wallace miss the race... I wish Nascar would atleast make an attempt to qualify the go-or-go-homers sometime saturday on days where qualifying gets rained out. Then they could just line them up 36th-43rd in order of qualifying speed... It wouldnt be that hard

This will not be good for Jr. At least he used to stink when qualifying was rained out. Maybe the rain will let up and they will get some good practice time tomorrow.

Tony Stewart wrecked his primary car in practice and will have to give up the pole position and start at the rear.

Jr. is mired around 19th after a Green flag pit stop and a long green flag run, he was around 13th earlier, I guess they made the car worse!:(

Yeah, when he was around 13th early I thought he'd have a good day but that first adjustment went the wrong way and he could never recover. :confused:

good run by jimmie...tough break with him being busted pitting while the pits were closed, thats something they need to look at too. Its impossible for someone to radio that a caution is out and the pits are closed when the driver is less than 100 feet from the commitment line. It happened to kurt busch at Watkins Glen last year and really screwed him up.

Hornish had another solid top 10 run.

JR didnt show me much.
