NASCAR turns to RFID to verify tire usage during race events

NASCAR has turned to RFID to ensure that race teams and drivers do not receive a competitive advantage over other teams. According to a case study posted by Impinj, NASCAR teams are allowed a set number of tires for each event.

NASCAR is using RFID to track tire usage during its races.

Teams must practice and qualify only on the allotted tires so they do not receive a competitive advantage over other teams. Every racing chassis involved in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series and Nationwide Series also must pass a pre-event certification process. To maintain fair racing, NASCAR sought a system to verify the certification of the chassis, and monitor team tire use and detect when teams are using unauthorized equipment.

Before each event, racing chassis are certified after a detailed inspection process and are affixed with RFID tags. At the start of each event, teams are issued their allotted number of Goodyear tires that contain an embedded RFID tag with a unique identification number.

At the exit of the garage, NASCAR has placed a tire station box with a Speedway Revolution reader provided by Impinj partner RFID Solutions, Inc. Each time a team enters the track to practice and to compete, the RFID readers interrogate the tags in the tires and verify the team is using their official tires for that race.

NASCAR has also built reader-portals, to read the tags in the chassis. Software shows the ownership and history of the chassis and verifies it has been certified for competition.
