RFK Racing co owner offers NASCAR an advice to legislate the restart zone

On every restart, the leading driver has control over when the green flag is waved. NASCAR designates a specific zone for restarts, marked by painted lines on the wall. Sometimes, drivers are given leeway if they don’t start exactly within the designated zone. After Denny Hamlin’s late pass raised questions on NASCAR’s restart zones, is there anything NASCAR can do to improve their restarts?

Brad Keselowski offers advice

Brad Keselowski, a prominent figure in NASCAR, has expressed his opinion regarding the use of technology to regulate the restart zone. Brad said as per the post of Bob Posckrass, it is okay when Elton Swayer said they missed it. It is part of the sport and things happen in sports.

Brad Keselowski fully appreciates the significance of technology and its role in aiding NASCAR’s decision-making processes. However, he also acknowledges the potential drawbacks associated with technology. Keselowski cited the example of last week’s race at COTA, where numerous penalties were issued due to NASCAR’s meticulous inspections and the reliance on seemingly flawless technology.

The restart created a buzz among the NASCAR community

The most debated restart during the 2024 NASCAR season occurred at Richmond Raceway involving Martin Truex Jr. and his Joe Gibbs Racing teammate, Denny Hamlin.  Truex accused Hamlin of firing off early during the final restart.

NASCAR thoroughly reviewed the situation. Elton Sawyer, NASCAR’s senior vice president of competition, stated that while it was “awful close,” they deemed it to be a “good restart.” Hamlin, who was the control vehicle, defended his move, saying he took off right away once his nose got there.
