Ross Chastain surprised many with his move in the last race. Namely, at one point during the race, Chastain put the car into the outside wall, and thus reached the finish line. With this move, he advanced five positions. Joey Logano commented on this move, which by all accounts is 'correct' and does not break the rules.
"We all did it as kids. We all did it in the video game. That's how you made speed in the video game, that's what you did," Logano was laughing. Logano believes that many will try to do something similar after this. "Something we all thought about at one point.
At least I thought about it a lot, but never really had the need to do it. Also kind of thought of how many races I could have won here by doing that. As spectacular as it was, as much as it worked, the problem is now the box is open, right? Now every Xfinity race, every Truck race, every Cup race, no matter the track, this wall riding is going to be a play.
That's not good. That's not good. "- Logano continued, as quoted by motorsport.com
Logano believes that there should still be a rule regarding such things. "I mean, it was awesome, it was cool. It happened for the first time.
There's no rule against it. There needs to be a rule against this one because I don't know if you want the whole field riding the wall coming to the checkered flag. I don't know if it's the safest thing for the driver or the fans when you have a car right up at the wall hauling the mail like that.
What if that fence, gate, wasn't closed all the way? What if it was bent and caught his car? That's a big risk that Ross was willing to take. God bless him, that's awesome, (but) I don't think we need to do that every week."
