The removal of scoring pylons has become a topic of discussion in the modern NASCAR industry. Recently, both Texas Motor Speedway and Talladega Superspeedway removed their scoring pylons, leaving fans and drivers with mixed feelings.

Last weekend at Texas Motor Speedway, fans noticed the absence of the traditional scoring pylon. Instead, an additional video board displayed only the top eight positions in the running order. This change raised practical concerns for drivers like Denny Hamlin, who rely on the pylon to quickly assess their position during races. Hamlin expressed frustration, emphasizing that other sports facilities are adding amenities, while NASCAR tracks seem to be losing key features.

As fans arrived at Talladega Superspeedway for the next Cup and Xfinity Series weekend, they were greeted by the removal of yet another pylon. NASCAR responded by stating that the Talladega scoring pylon was old and outdated. They pointed out that the running order is now displayed on the big screens, and fans are encouraged to use track Wi-Fi to access the NASCAR app. However, this explanation didn’t sit well with many in the industry.

The continual removal of scoring pylons has left the NASCAR community peeved. While some tracks have constructed LED scoring pylons that replicate the old models, others question why video boards are replacing these iconic fixtures. Fans in the stands may struggle to see the running order clearly, especially without a dedicated pylon. The debate continues, highlighting the delicate balance between tradition and technological advancements in racing venues.
