Driver Joe Nemechek has no complaints with NASCAR's decision to change the practice, qualifying and work schedule on race weekends next year.
"I think it is a good thing they are doing," Nemechek said. "We do some of that in the Busch Series right now. We did that with our Cellular One car at Charlotte this year. I think we qualified sixth. They dropped the green flag and we drove up and took the lead. Unfortunately, we got crashed in that race, but we were able to drive to the front.
"You have to know the way the rules are working, how they are going to do it and figure out which way to do it.
"I think it will save teams money. It saves the team guys because they are working on these cars all the time. It is a never-ending process for them. By doing this, you just have to be more prepared when you get to the track. Normally after qualifying, we have practice and then you have nine hours to make sure all the nuts and bolts are tight before the race. Now you won't have that opportunity, so you better be prepared when you get to the track."
