NASCAR fans get to vote on Sprint Unlimited regulations

NASCAR and Sprint confirmed today that fans will have a direct impact on several competition elements of The Sprint Unlimited At Daytona.

The 75-lap non-points race that opens the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season will be influenced by the fans’ preferences, as they will play an integral part in how the race unfolds on Saturday, February 16 at Daytona International Speedway.

Fans are invited to design several competition aspects of the preseason event by casting their vote. They will get to decide on the number of laps in each segment, the type of pit stop a team makes after the first segment and how many cars will be eliminated after the second segment.

Votes can be cast on NASCAR’s new official mobile app – NASCAR Mobile ’13 – or at NASCAR.com/SprintUnlimited. All votes made through the NASCAR Mobile ’13 app will count twice.

“We are excited to provide our fan base this first-of-its-kind opportunity to directly be involved in determining the race’s format and in-race decisions. By allowing our fans this type of interaction, it is our hope that more fans will be tuned in to the event than ever before,” said Robin Pemberton, NASCAR vice president of competition.

The voting window for the race format will close on Wednesday, Feb. 13 at 11:59 p.m. ET. The voting windows for the pit stop and elimination will close at various times throughout the race broadcast.

Fan voting categories include:

Length of each of the three race segments:
Choice A: 40 laps, 20 laps, 15 laps
Choice B: 35 laps, 30 laps, 10 laps
Choice C: 30 laps, 25 laps, 20 laps
*Race format voting ends at 11:59 p.m. EST on Wednesday, Feb. 13.

Team pit stop after the first segment:
Choice A: No pit stop
Choice B: Two (2) tire change
Choice C: Four (4) tire change
*Pit stop voting concludes at the green flag of the first segment.

How many cars will be eliminated after the second segment:
Choice A: None (0)
Choice B: Two (2) cars eliminated
Choice C: Four (4) cars eliminated
Choice D: Six (6) cars eliminated
*Elimination voting concludes at the green flag of the first segment.
