The NASCAR Cup Series traveled to New Hampshire Motor Speedway for their one and only stop of the season at the Magic Mile. Moments after the race began, there was chaos as race leader Kyle Busch wrecked along with several others behind him. A NASCAR officiating decision kept the race under green-flag conditions, a choice Busch strongly felt caused the incident. Moisture on the track caused him to lose grip several laps after he and other drivers complained of rain seeping into the one-mile oval.
How can NASCAR officiating improve in situations like this one? What can the sanctioning body do differently to avoid further controversy? Frontstretch’s Bryan Nolen and Adam Cheek discuss in the latest edition of Stock Car Scoop. Also on the agenda: how did Aric Almirola’s upset victory shake up the NASCAR playoff race with four races remaining and which driver should be the most concerned about potentially losing their postseason bid?
