NASCAR in talks to decrease horsepower in 2015

Though NASCAR is only five races into the 2014 season, changes for next year are already being discussed.

In an exclusive interview,’s Tom Jensen talked with Robin Pemberton about the possibility of reducing horsepower in 2015. The changes would include cutting “75 to 100” horsepower off what the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series engines run, which is between 860 and 900.

The Vice President of Competition and Racing Development also revealed that the sanctioning body has had four meetings with manufacturer representatives to discuss the modifications. No consensus has been made as of yet.

In Jensen’s article, Pemberton is adamant that this is not to solely affect the racing seen on the track. “There’s no guarantee horsepower may or may not doing anything for the quality of racing, but it will allow us to do other things.”
