Technical changes

1995 saw the Lumina, which had been Chevrolet's official car in NASCAR since the 1989 Winston 500, being replaced by the new Chevrolet Monte Carlo, which had last run at the 1989 Pabst Blue Ribbon 400.

Morgan-McClure Motorsports began utilizing exhaust headers manufactured by Dr. Gas Performance Exhaust, which not only gave the car increased horsepower, but also gave the car a distinct screaming sound. By 1996, all cars were running with Dr. Gas headers, and continue doing so to this day.
