    It's amazing to me they allowed in the past. A much needed rule.

    Don't think they'll have much trouble enforcing that rule.

    Allowed? I'm thinking it was encouraged because the drama sells tickets.

    I'm surprised Tony is sitting out another week. I could understand him avoiding dirt track indefinitely, but Sprint Cup is quite a different environment.

    No doubt! Especially at the small tracks.

    Seems like common sense. Which means there is a rule needed since no one has common sense any longer.

    Like the rest of NASCAR, this update is only 50 years overdue ;)

    I wouldn't do it in either place, but I've seen people run across more than 3 lanes of highway traffic before.

    99.9999% of racers wouldn't get out of their car and run in front of a sprint car either, FWIW.
