NASCAR will eliminate the driver-adjustable track bar as part of the 2019 Monster Energy Cup Series rules package.

Drivers have had the device at their disposal since 2015, which allows them the opportunity to move the bar in order to improve handling. The idea was to give drivers something to use while remaining on track and not waiting for a pit stop to make adjustments.

However that will no longer be the case beginning next season.

“Many came to us and said, ‘hey, look this really didn’t do what we hoped for and we’d rather not have it,’ said Scott Miller, NASCAR senior vice president of competition on the Monday edition of Sirius XM NASCAR Radio’s “The Morning Drive.”

“Part of the 2019 rules is that the cockpit-adjustable track bar is no longer in play.”

NASCAR released next season’s rules package last week, which among other things will include a great deal of horsepower reduction and the use of tapered spacers as well as aerodynamic modifications in hopes of enhancing competition.

The eradication of the driver-adjusted track bar was not widely unknown until Monday’s on-air discussion.
