Basically person in lucky dog position will be in best interest to create a
caution (ie cause accident) to get his lap back.  When driver is desperate, he
do anything to get lap back and some will probably cause crash for other driver
by doing pit maneuver or other action to create the yellow.

And this is different than under the old rules?

I'll answer for you: it isn't.

I don't like the lucky dog rule (or racing back to the caution for
that matter), but if someone blatantly causes an intentional caution
they probably will be black flagged.  See Ricky Craven earier this
year when he parked the car against the wall after he got a flat, or
when another driver (I can't remember who...and it may have been in a
Busch race) threw a roll bar pad out the window to draw a caution.

Of course there's always the theory that certain drivers (#8, #24,
etc.) won't draw a black flag no matter what they do...so who knows.

Craven did get black flagged for that stunt.

They do not have to cause an accident to get a caution.  All they have
to do is throw something out the window, and bada-bing!  The caution
comes out for debris on the track.  Although, with the in-car cameras,
they are more likely to get caught.

I agree with this.  The rule should be, if the caution is for something you
did, the next car gets its lap back, not you.
