10 Dumbest Rule Changes In NASCAR History

#7 overtime rule at the end of stages

NASCAR has been known for overcompensating in the past and there are few better examples of that then the sports overtime rule at the end of the each stage. While NASCAR did make the right decision by moving the overtime line to the start finish line and giving the field an unlimited amount of attempts to finish the race, they did the same at the end of each stage as well.

Not only does the overtime rule at the end of each stage delay the race each time that drivers are unsuccessful in making it past the overtime line, it also creates a chaotic nature at the end of each stage, which holds the possibility of drivers tearing up their cars prematurely. With that being said, it does more harm than good and is a waste of time in a rain shortened race situation.
