What is the average time to change a tire in Nascar?

I want to know how long it takes for a Nascar pit crew to change a tire.

A crew of two members can remove the lug nuts and replace the tire on a race car on average in about 4 seconds. Most Nascar crews usually want pit stops to be no longer than 12 seconds. A second more could be the difference between winning a losing a race.

From watching a race I've seen average pit times to change tires to be about 20 seconds in length before the driver speeds off.

It obviously depends on the crew and what the reason is for the tire change (blow out, tread being worn down, etc), but the average time would be approximately 20 seconds.
