Eibach Scores The Hat Trick
For the first time in NASCAR history, all three NASCAR series will be equipped with Eibach springs. In less than three weeks the much-anticipated NASCAR season kicks off with the legendary Daytona 500 on February 22nd. All three of the top NASCAR series will be racing at the world-famous Daytona International Speedway as the stars and cars of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, NASCAR XFINITY Series and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series go to war atop the 2.5 mile oval.
The festivities starts the week prior with qualifying and preliminary races. In total, more than 200 machines are expected to participate in the smorgasbord of speed. Equipped with over 700 horsepower and approaching top speeds of nearly 200 mph, these daredevils of the blacktop regularly find themselves battling three wide into the turns or drafting nose-to-tail at top speed in a white-knuckle slipstream.
For the first time in the long and storied history of NASCAR, every single vehicle in the three top-tier classes will be equipped with Eibach Springs. This is a mandatory rule of NASCAR Superspeedways and for good reason. Superspeedways notoriously produce high top speeds, and racing on these high-banked tracks generate unbelievable aerodynamic downforce loads that are performance critical. Utilizing Eibach Springs on all entries creates an absolute level playing field for all of the teams, while simultaneously maintaining a safety factor across the board. A failure from any spring on any corner of any race car could lead to aerodynamic shifts in the wrong direction causing the car to become airborne, possibly causing a catastrophic multi-car accident. This risk is reduced with state-of-the-art Eibach Racing Springs. Eibach’s cutting-edge technology has a focus on intricately minimized tolerances on rates and heights under static loads as well as the race-proven Eibach durability.
This is just one of the many reasons why NASCAR has trusted Eibach as their official spring supplier for many years in the Cup series. Now for the first time ever Eibach will see their products mandated in all three of the top level NASCAR series. With 65 years of experience Eibach has proven that we have the technology to keep the playing field as even as possible, while also keeping the drivers safe!
