    The guy that did it (Ross Chastain), it vaulted him into the Final 4 for the championship. Thus he gained an advantage by doing it. And good for him.

    To get into the NASCAR playoffs, I believe that if you win a race you are automatically in no matter where you are in the standings. Thus I could see a lower level team doing it to win a race to then get into the playoffs.

    The move has precedent:

    But as you see it didn’t work too well at Darlington. Martinsville feels like the only place it would work; the high speed and short time against the wall lends itself well, whereas trying to wall ride at a 1.5 miler won’t.

    People were giving it a shot in iRacing this week. Apparently in Cup cars it works, but not in Trucks or Xfinity.
