Title: Rule Change Regarding Door Foam
Post by: Cheryl on April 04, 2007, 12:43:03 PM
From Jayski:

"UPDATE: NASCAR will allow teams to eliminate part of the square block of foam that sits inside the right door of the new Nextel Cup car of tomorrow in order to keep it from melting, according to teams at Richmond International Raceway for testing Tuesday. Instead of having a square piece, teams can shape the foam, with a rectangular portion in the bottom left corner cut away from above the exhaust pipes. Teams were given a new graphic of how the foam can be installed. The foam doesn't burn as much as it smolders. NASCAR says the fumes are not toxic.(SceneDaily.com)(4-3-2007)"

Here's an article that Lou found that gives some more details:
