To ease the financial burden of new truck construction, pursuant to major changes in the body design this year, NASCAR will allow teams to run their choice of 2013 or 2014 models at speedways measuring 1.25 miles or less.

Ryan Blaney, expected to be a championship contender in a truck fielded by Brad Keselowski, says his team will run only new models this year.

"I think we're going to go all new this year," Blaney said Monday at Daytona. "We've been in the (wind) tunnel, and we've seen how much improved they are, how much faster they are, just how much better downforce they (have) and all that stuff.

"We're planning on using all brand-new trucks, except for the Eldora race (on dirt). We're going to use an old one for that race. But as far as everything else goes, we're going to go with the new 2014 stuff."
