The changes were made to help improve racing on what is an extremely tight race course. According to one driver who competes for one of the top teams in the series following Saturday morning’s practice, “This is not a street course. Saturday morning’s practice session was frustrating for many drivers because with 27 cars on such a short street course, there is one car for every 300 feet of track.
