Spoiler coming to Martinsville

NASCAR has finally come out and announced an actual date for the new spoiler's debut. All the speculation was correct -- the wings will be removed from Sprint Cup cars and replaced with spoilers for the March 28 race at Martinsville Speedway.

NASCAR announced back in January that the Sprint Cup Series would transition from wings to spoilers sometime during the 2010 season but held off on announcing a date for the move. A test was held at Talladega Superspeedway on Tuesday, and NASCAR officials left that test feeling good about the new spoiler, good enough to announce the following day that they would be used as soon as March 28th at Martinsville.

A four-inch spoiler will be on the cars at Martinsville and other short tracks. The size of superspeedway spoilers has yet to be decided.
