After some generally lackluster racing in the 2022 All-Star Race at Texas Motor Speedway, the NASCAR Cup Series’ exhibition event was won by Ryan Blaney after a green-flag run of double-digit laps … or so it seemed.
Instead, a last-second caution forced overtime just as Blaney was about to take the checkered flag. The initial reaction from Blaney, thinking he had won, was to put his window net down, a rule NASCAR typically strictly enforces. Blaney was allowed to hold it up and won a race he deserved to, but how could the situation have been handled better by NASCAR and what was the racing like at Texas? Hosts Bryan Nolen and Adam Cheek discuss this and more.
