If you haven’t seen it, trust me, don’t rent, it’s really bad. Instead watch the replay from last week’s race at Talladega.

NASCAR Was Correct in Black Flagging Brad Keselowski
The first thing you need to know is NASCAR added at least one more official to this deal and maybe even another camera or two after they clearly allowed Jeff Gordon to get away with jumping the restart at Chicago the week before.
