"Yellow LIne" revisited!

Double Yellow Line at Daytona = do not pass: In order to emphasize the yellow-line rule at Daytona International Speedway where passes are not permitted, NASCAR has made the single yellow line into a double-yellow line. The second yellow line was painted on the inside of the existing yellow line.(SceneDaily)(2-8-2009)

It's been a while since I blogged but with the start of the raing season upon us I'll try to do it with some regularity.

I copied the yellow line item from Jayski and also posted a thread on the autoboard. For those of you who don't know I have been fairly outspoken about how NASAR handles the "yellow line" (see my previous blog about Talladega No Calls). Now they paint another line on the track and give you the impression they (NASCAR) are going to do something different then in the past for anyone who improves their position by goin below the yellow line.

I have said it before and I'll say it again. Until NASCAR shows some resemblence of consistency It will still be a subjective call. Depending upon whom the subject is...bluejay
