My fave is…

Harry: All right. While we're still under a caution, I want you to go back out on that track and hit the pace car.

Cole: Hit the pace car?

Harry: Hit the pace car.

Cole: What for?

Harry: Because you've hit every other goddamned thing out there, I want you to be perfect

Wait, I just read this was intentional?! I assumed it was because of a mechanical failure or something.

Mechanical failure but:

"As Chastain's onboard telemetry shows, his No. 1 Chevrolet Camaro made initial contact with the wall at 130 miles per hour. He kept the throttle pegged and ran in fifth gear while no one else ever went past fourth for the entire race"

After research, he made the decision to try this just seconds before hand in a last ditch attempt to get to 4th place to compete for the championship. No mechanical failure leading up to it.

They were claiming mechanical failure in the immediate aftermath but I suppose since no serious penalties came from it the truth came out. First "things turned blurry." Then it became the whole "I did this on GameCube" explanation lol

Pretty epic and unexpected overall

I guess it was attempted in 2021 as well but was unsuccessful. My understanding is it needs to be a small radius turn, which Martinsville is.
