Measuring process changed for Monte Carlos

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- NASCAR officials announced modifications in the inspection and measuring process, specifically for the Chevrolet Monte Carlo, beginning with the NASCAR Winston Cup event weekend at Texas Motor Speedway on April 5th.

The current NASCAR Winston Cup Series inspection process utilizes reference lines for inspection located on the inspection room floor to help determine the overall length of the front of the car for each manufacturer.

The Chevrolet's reference line has been moved to the same point as the Ford Taurus and Dodge Intrepid. It will now be measured at 100 ¼ inches in length. Prior to this modification, the Chevrolet was measured at 99 inches). The Pontiac Grand Prix is measured at 100 ½ inches.
