NASCAR will sanction the popular wall-breaking technique in video games

NASCAR is taking steps to stop the driving technique popularized in part by video games. For anyone just catching up, on the final lap of a giant race in 2022, NASCAR driver Ross Chastain put his car in fifth gear, crashed into a wall and passed multiple hands. race to the finish line in fourth place and qualify for the Championship Finals. Chastain said he learned the “break through the wall” technique while playing an old NASCAR game for the GameCube.

Well, unfortunately for Chastain and any other drivers wanting to try the same move, it has now been technically fined by NASCAR. in one blog postNASCAR said Chastain’s move “created an enchanting finish” at the event, but it posed a safety risk that NASCAR was not comfortable with.

A NASCAR rule states that “safety comes first” and as such, “any violation deemed to compromise the safety of an event or pose a dangerous risk.” for the safety of competitors, officials, spectators or others are dealt with with the utmost seriousness.”

Going forward, NASCAR officials will issue a time penalty for any attempt to commit an “unsafe act” like Chastain did in 2022.

“Basically, if there is an action that we feel affects the safety of our competitors, officials, spectators, then we take that action seriously. And we will penalize that action in the future,” said Elton Sawyer, NASCAR’s chief operating officer.

At the time, Chastain said, “I played a lot of NASCAR 2005 on the GameCube. I never knew if it really worked.” [in real life]. I did that when I was eight years old. I just made a choice. I grabbed the fifth device… and fully committed. Once I hit the wall, I basically let go of the steering wheel…”

This tactic totally works, but as you can see from watching the dramatic video, things can go very badly for Chastain and the others in the race. However, at the time, there were no rules against it. Even so, other riders criticized the move, saying it was “just a bad look.”
