Proposal being studied to get rid of jack men and replace them with pneumatic car lifts as used in Indy Car and similar series.

I figure if this passes then in the next few years you will see a switch over to single lug rims.

Do not think fueling towers will be passed since cars often pit at an angle and it would not be possible to get probe to cars at times.

That'll solve the post race lug nut issue.

Definetly true. It should also be a little safer for the over the wall guys. Personally, I think they should make them use the bumper jacks like we had on passenger cars back in the day.
