Inside Line: Jamie McMurray previews some new NASCAR in-car technology

Fresh off a strong sixth-place finish on Saturday night in Texas in which he was leading the race late, Jamie McMurray was at the Goodyear tire test today at Kentucky Speedway and he tweeted a couple of pictures of a new electronic dashboard that could be coming to Sprint Cup in near future. Let's take a look.


McMurray says that this new dash has the ability to see lap times, monitor tire pressure, check pit road speeds, etc.

Compare that to what a current NASCAR dashboard looks like and you'll see a noticeable difference.

Indeed.

Now it looks like NASCAR is moving further into the future in terms of the in-car technology, and who knows what could be next.
