Article on the Chase Elliott fiasco. https://nascar.nbcsports.com/2019/0...elTfxt6iiZ5m4PfZHw5M2r0zHc0k3nh6ikREa7abC-e1I As most people here know, I'm probably Chase's harshest critic on here. But man, he got boned in my opinion. The start and restart rules have bothered me for years. If the leader can't be beat to the start/finish line, then that should be where the race starts -- not in between turn four and the start/finish line. And the restart box has driven me bonkers for a decade now. I've seen that silly rule cause numerous crashes over the years. Just like the start, if they're going to restart in turn four, have a restart line and go from there. If the leader doesn't go at the line, he loses the spot fair and square. If he is beat to that line, the car that passes gets penalized. Not to mention, having a "line" makes it even more apparent as to whether a car spun the tires or didn't go or brake checked - whereas a restart zone and a start zone makes it perfectly acceptable to slow down or gives one, and only one car, latitude for a mistake. All these rules now that they have in NASCAR and short track racing complicate a simple procedure.
