NASCAR’s Miller: “Unacceptable” For Cars To Catch Fire

NASCAR SVP of Competition Scott Miller has responded after Stewart Haas Racing driver Kevin Harvick was critical of the Next Gen car after Sunday’s Cook Out Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway. It’s only the latest incident where a Next Gen Cup Series car has caught fire during a race. “There’s a lot of rubber at Darlington, we’re not certain if rubber getting into the rocker box was the problem or not,” Miller said. “There’s a lot of work going on, a lot of collaboration within the industry to get to the bottom of it. “I’m sure it’s just the crappy parts on the race car like we’ve seen so many times,” Harvick said. In response to Harvick’s comments, Miller made it clear that NASCAR isn’t taking the situation lightly. “To say that NASCAR didn’t care is about as far from the truth as you could get,” Miller said.
