NASCAR is exploring whether to eliminate jackmen from pit stops by equipping the cars with air-jack systems. The sanctioning body, which often considers a variety of changes at this time of year but doesn't necessarily implement all of them, won't confirm how far along it is in the process nor any timetable for a decision. The change, which would reduce the number of crewmen on pit road during pit stops, could potentially save teams money, depending on how much the system costs as well as any development on how it changes the handling of the car.

Hendrick Motorsports promoted head engine builder Jeff Andrews to vice president of competition, overseeing the engine department and Hendrick's competition systems group as well as serving on NASCAR's competition committee. Team manager Brian Whitesell was promoted to vice president of operations to oversee the organization's vehicle engineering group and to direct all vehicle-related production. The crew chiefs will report to team president Marshall Carlson. The changes follow the departure of executive vice president/general manager Doug Duchardt in June.

A U.S. District Court judge denied NASCAR's motion to dismiss a racial discrimination lawsuit filed by Terrance Cox, who claims that NASCAR rebuffed his efforts to launch programs and a race team to help NASCAR's diversity program. The decision determined that the lawsuit filed by Cox, who claims damages of $500 million apiece for a variety of discrimination allegations, was sufficient enough for the case to continue into the discovery process and NASCAR could re-raise the arguments later in asking for summary judgment.
