oh right, I forgot about this race.

Stages are 125-125-250, with competition yellows at lap 20 and 60 to check tire wear.

Since there was a caution before lap 20 why on Earth throw the competition yellow? NASCAR logic... sigh.

Usually an early caution means they delay it.

They should get rid of that alltogether IMO. Just like throwing green with one or two laps left in a stage only to end the stage with another caution. Total BS.

The whole caution after the stage is BS. They waste so many laps just plodding about, it's utterly idiotic.

If it rains the night before say the Indy 500, they never throw a competition caution to check tyres do they?

Ty Dillon had a brain freeze? He had a lot of time to avoid Blaney's car.

Nah, if you look Blaney was going to the inside but at the last minute went back to the outside in that spin. Split second decision.

It's to avaluate bad tyre wear, so it has to run a minimum amount of laps. Nascar cars don't have a zillion adjustments that you can make on your wheel. You have to actually use only your driving skills.

They also don't have 50 engineers looking at the telemetry for you (that room full of people on the track + A LOT MORE on the factory). They have to take the tyres out of the car and asses the wear by actually looking at the tyre itself.
