Just the word alone is enough to create an unmatched level of excitement in NASCAR fans and drivers alike. In fact, it is one of the most exciting types of racing that the sport of NASCAR has going for it right now, which is probably why officials decided to implement the rules package during the 2018 All Star race at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

What they ultimately decide to do is up to them, but here are the pros and cons of a crucial decison like this and how it affect the sport in the long run.
