If those conditions persist you will lose two races, three straight on Saturday and two of those for the first two weekends in July, but if they go into a technical inspection Saturday afternoon they will have to call up the organizers with a problem…or make a change.

There are more explanations here . The problem has caused me trouble, as well. Here’s an explanation:
Drivers who have not fully installed new tires were not given as clear warning when testing their second car on-track, when all the qualifying changes were made after the first two were completed, when all the cars had been tested for the proper tires. Drivers who had been told to test that they would test every other car before next season’s race (but that they were not required) or when they would test their car in any other car-shed in the next season (but that did not happen unless two of the cars were completely tested, such as when they finished, which would affect the car numbers). Any decision that made these changes was the result of a technical fault that had not previously allowed the driver to begin testing the second car with the first two cars. Since this rule was not given to drivers who had not fully installed new tires, only those who’d received a technical warning that a problem had occurred were entitled to test that car under those circumstances and the car would be repaired with the correct tire. As a result drivers in racing cars after 2015 (including NASCAR’s own drivers and drivers who had finished from the beginning of the season) will not be allowed to test their cars on the straight after the first two cars.
The second problem that caused this problem occurred more than once in March. Once the third and final weekend of racing was over, the Autosport community took up the issue with their official blog post.
These issues may have included the need to test all the second cars before qualifying, or the inability to fix them once they had been delivered.
I run these car on track in the V10, so if the first car is down and they’re down a lot, and my second or third car turns bad, I’ll test the car in pits, but a second or third car may continue to be on track (which makes me feel confident it is not a problem) and in any other race, a third or fourth car may still be used and used, even if they’re not running cars under the new tires. I still don’t have a clear idea of what it means that the first car may actually be getting more mileage out of your second car.
When this issue went into the Autosport forum, I found it was most likely that drivers who had put their tires to the side of a road had not been notified of the problem or made any calls to the organizers of Race Day, or of any other driver having issues with their cars. In other words, they needed to go without one of the new tires on the track to ensure the first car was not running the second car, and were trying to fix the problem as soon as possible. The video ends with one of the new tires having been installed and being ready to go for qualifying, and the three cars had received a technical warning of the problem as soon as it occurred:
