Yellow flag, Red flag, heres the solution.

Post by BK YD ME » Mon, 10 Aug 1998 04:00:00


Yellow flag finishes and Red flags that result in shootout laps, no one is ever
happy, except for the fans of the winner!

Other sport buffs claim auto racing of any type is not a sport because there
is, as they claim, no physical involvement. Ofcourse, we here at RASN know
better.

I have proposed a solution that should shut the mouths of most everyone! But
ofcourse, I don't claim that everyone will be happy with this, especially Jimmy
Spencer fans, and others who just like to***and moan.

My proposal is, that in the event of a yellow flag finish or a shootout finish
resulting from a yellow or red flag, park the damn cars! Thats right! On the
last lap, park the freakin' cars!

Make all of the drivers climb their fat asses out of the drivers seat and line
up at the start finish line, and when the command is given' let em' run the
last lap! I don't mean run it in a car. On foot! Something some of us forgot
how to do!

That should rid of any poor excuse of how Nascar fixed the finish, or
so-en-so's engine wasn't quick when the car cooled down. If yer driver can't
run, their a loser, plain and simple! And hey, wouldn't Happy hour be more
interesting?!

But I'm sure there will be some whinny-assed guy out there claimming someone
cheated! "Hey man! Did you see that smoke comming from Gordons shoes? He musta
been cheating! They had to be rocket propelled running sneakers!".

<tongue-in-cheek solution snipped>

OK, how's this for a real solution?

Any existing caution that would extend into the last five laps becomes a
red with five to go.  With one caution lap to get going again, that would
bring the green out with four to go.

A caution with less than five to go would be handled as it is today with
the race in all likelihood ending under caution.

Obviously this isn't a perfect solution, but this isn't a perfect world...

I can just hear it now "Mark Martin has come from ten laps down on the last lap of
the Daytona 500 to win."
