Wonder what would happen if the leaders car one day shuts off coming to the green how the rule would be enforced. Here it was enforced right because Denny was still going. Bur if the leaders car messed up coming to green, then what??
I feel you. Chase did that at Phoenix spring race a year or two ago. Blaney spun his tires and Chase got the penalty for beating him to the line. Was one of the fastest cars all day but never overcame the penalty.
