Last week, Texas Motor Speedway made headlines by removing its iconic scoring pylon. The fixture, which had stood since the track’s opening, vanished, leaving fans and drivers disoriented.

The trend continued at Talladega, where another pylon was conspicuously absent. Fans arriving for the Cup and Xfinity Series weekend were greeted by the void. The outcry was immediate.
