NASCAR makes start/fin­ish line new over­time race marker

Cape Breton Post - - Sports -

DAY­TONA BEACH, Fla. — NASCAR has stan­dard­ized the lo­ca­tion of the over­time line, start­ing with this week­end’s races at Watkins Glen. NASCAR says the start/fin­ish line will serve as the OT marker at every race the rest of this sea­son.

The over­time line is the line driv­ers must reach un­der green flag con­di­tions fol­low­ing a restart for the race to be­come of­fi­cial.

The line had usu­ally been marked on the back­stretch. Driv­ers must com­plete a full lap when a race goes into over­time for it to be con­sid­ered com­plete.

If the race leader does not reach the start/fin­ish line un­der green, that race will have an­other restart.
