NASCAR Confirms that Driver Names will be Emblazoned on the Front Windshield


For the 2021 season, there will be a host of new changes in NASCAR. Among them will be a number of physically aesthetic alterations. To be precise, the respective drivers will have their names on their cars’ windshields. Aside from that, the manufacturer logos will also be present on the banner.

Naturally, one can assume that it will be easier for the fans and officials to identify the cars better. Previously, the words ‘Cup Series’ would have been stuck on the windshield along with the manufacturer logo. The last time the windshield stickers were changed, it was for the 2020 Cup Series playoffs.

It is also worth noting that this new change is only relevant for the Cup Series for now. There is no word on whether the Xfinity or Truck drivers will have the same thing applied to them.

What other changes are expected for the 2021 NASCAR Cup season?

Other major changes largely center around the 2021 calendar. For next year, there will be a number of new tracks, particularly road courses. Among the debutants, is the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas, along with the return of dirt tracks. The best part is that the dirt surface return applies for all three series.

To be precise, all three series will make landfall at the Bristol Motor Speedway dirt track. Additionally, the Bristol track is just one of two dirt track races for the Truck Series in 2021. The other track is the Knoxville Raceway in the month of July.

However, all these alterations are just a small taste of what is to come in the 2022 season. This is because the Next-Gen car is slated to make its official debut in that year.

For the moment, the NASCAR driver and the community only have to focus on the immediate future. One thing is for sure, the 2021 season will be just as action-packed as the current year’s edition.
