NASCAR OFFICIALS ANNOUNCE MODIFICATIONS

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. --- NASCAR officials announced today a modification to the Ford Thunderbird for competition in the NASCAR Winston Cup Series. The decision comes after analyzing the data from a wind tunnel session last March, as well as considering options presented by Ford.

Through a technical bulletin, officials approved a reduction of an additional half inch in the rear portion of the roof line on all all Thunderbirds at tracks one mile or longer, with the exception of road courses, Daytona international Speedway and Talladega Super speedway.

The changes will be effective prior to The Winston Select all-star weekend at Charlotte Motor Speedway May 17-18.
