Back in December 2017, NASCAR released a complete list of track speed limits for 2018. That’s right, we said speed limits.

But before you get all riled up and tell all of your Facebook friends that NASCAR is dead to you, let us point out that it is only for the pace cars and pit road.

Once the shock wears off that a speed limit at a NASCAR track is a thing, you will notice there is only one change from 2016. Charlotte gets lower limits for its Roval configuration. The pit speed is five MPH slower than the oval configuration at 40 MPH, and the pace car has to keep itself 10 mph slower than it is used to at 45 MPH.

If you’re looking to have some obscure NASCAR trivia under your belt, here is the complete speed limit list from NASCAR.com:
