KANSAS CITY, KAN.

NASCAR has had preliminary discussions with its three manufacturers to discuss the possibility of a makeover for the vehicles in the Camping World Truck Series.

Truck Series director Chad Little confirmed that a meeting was held earlier this month at the NASCAR Research and Development Center to debate modifications would be made but nothing is “concrete.”

BOOGITY! BOOGITY! BOOGITY!

NASCAR on FOX brings live coverage of the Sprint Cup race at Dover International Speedway on Sunday. The green flag drops at 1 p.m. ET, with coverage on FOX beginning at 12:30 p.m. ET.

“There have been discussions with the manufacturers about a possible update,” Little said. “But just discussions of a front-end update right now. We’re not far along right now to say any more than that.”

Little added that the manufacturers – Chevrolet, Ford and Toyota – presented a plan that would involve an update to the front end. Potential changes include a shorter nose, narrower front end and alterations to the bumpers, headlights and grilles.

The timing makes sense since there will be redesigned Silverados, F150s and Tundras in the showrooms later this season.

“Hopefully, we’ll have a decision soon,” Little said. “We need to inform the competitors and obviously they need to make plans, too. Hopefully, we’ll get it finalized soon but nothing has been decided more than that right now.”
