NASCAR says it's "unacceptable" for Next Gen cars to catch fire

Key Facts

  • On Lap 276 of 367 in Sunday night’s Southern 500 at Darlington (S.C.) Raceway, fire erupted first out of the right side of Harvick’s No. 4 Ford and then the left, which forced him to bring the car to a stop at the bottom of Turn 1.
  • In an interview afterwards, Harvick blamed the issue on “crappy parts” on the Next Gen car and in reference to action taken by NASCAR to address the problem said, “They don’t care.”
  • I know that was an emotional time and his race was ruined but to say that NASCAR didn’t care is about as far from the truth as you could get,” Miller said.
  • LOOKING INTO IT Miller pointed out NASCAR has been working on the issue since it first came to light at the Indy Road Course, when the cars of Chris Buescher and Joey Logano both had fires erupt in the rocker box from crash damage, mostly from under the right side of the cars.
