Pit road and caution vehicle speeds for 2018 have been released by NASCAR with very little change from last year.
All of the speed limits from last year's existing tracks in the sport's top three series have remained the same. The only new piece of information is the addition of the road course at Charlotte Motor Speedway. It will have speed limits slightly lower than those of the 1.5-mile oval course layout, according to NASCAR.com.
A five-mph buffer is provided above the announced speed limit at each track as indicated by the NASCAR Rule Book.
In addition to the new information for Charlotte, another slight change will take affect beginning in 2018. The track at Phoenix will no longer be known as Phoenix International Raceway, it will now be called ISM Raceway.
