COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) – NASCAR plans to automate its rule book and revamp its appeals process in a wide-ranging effort to bring more clarity to race teams and fans.

The governing body outlined several initiatives Monday it expects to implement in its three major series before the start of the 2015 racing season. Those included converting its rule book from a word document to computer automated-design drawings so race shops can see exactly what is allowed and what isn’t.

It also plans to spell out exact penalties that violating each rule may bring. When a penalty is appealed, NASCAR wants more experts on the panel instead of some who might not have as strong a background regarding the infraction.

NASCAR also wants to upgrade what pit information is available to fans on race day.
