Podcast #174 — Hamlin survives Talladega chaos

Recap Yellawood 500 from Talladega Superspeedway

  • Denny Hamlin outlives the carnage, gets the win
  • Yellow Line Rule rears its ugly head again. 
    • Should the rule be eliminated?
    • What about eliminating it on the last lap?
    • How should NASCAR police it?
    • The rule as written: 
      • 10.8.3 SUPERSPEEDWAY EVENTS/ADDITIONAL IN-RACE VIOLATIONS
      • .a Vehicles must race above the double yellow lines around the entire race track. If in NASCAR’s judgement, the vehicle(s) goes beneath the double yellow lines to improve its position, vehicle(s) will be black-flagged. If in NASCAR’s judgement a vehicle forces another vehicle beneath the double yellow lines (in an effort to stop the advancement/pass) the vehicle may be black-flagged.
      • .b NASCAR defines beneath the double yellow lines as follows: when the vehicle’s left side tires are beneath the left line of the inside double yellow lines that separates the apron from the racing surface while passing another vehicle.
