    NASCAR recently announced that stage racing at road courses will not have any caution flags that could interrupt the flow of competition.

    Another change that NASCAR made is that they could now penalize “vehicles that employ a similar strategy to the one Ross Chastain used in his “Hail Melon” move at Martinsville Speedway”.

    While these rules seem to be relatively accepted by NASCAR fans, there is one rule that is getting criticized a lot. While it has been implemented since the 2020 season, the Choose rule will now take effect even in superspeedway races and dirt races, as reported by Bob Pockrass.

    However, this decision didn’t go well with fans as they criticized the rule for making the race boring.

     

    The rule allows the drivers to choose between the inside or the outside lane after the restart. While some fans might be unhappy about it, NASCAR professionals would disagree as they see this rule as making the race more entertaining.

    When it was implemented in 2020, Chase Elliott commented that “the choose rule’s been needed for a long time”. After all, the rule gives the driver freedom to choose their comfortable lan.
