XFINITY Series Teams to Have Flange-Fit Composite Body Option

August 14 2017

NASCAR XFINITY Series teams will have the option of using a flange-fit composite body at three races later this season as the series moves toward incorporating the body into competition full-time by 2019.

XFINITY Series director Wayne Auton told NASCAR.com that teams will have the option of running the composite body at Richmond, Dover and Phoenix this year, and it is expected to also be optional for ’18 at all tracks other than superspeedways.

Approximately 90 percent of those expected to compete in the Richmond XFINITY Series race (7:30 p.m. ET, 9/8, NBCSN) have already indicated they will compete with the new composite body.
