When a chunk of the concrete racing surface at Dover (Del.) International Speedway came up, leaving a pothole, during Sunday's FedEx 400 Benefiting Autism Speaks NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race, that chunk of concrete damaged the splitter of the No. 1 Chip Ganassi Racing Chevrolet of Jamie McMurray. The race was red-flagged so that track officials could repair the pothole. But during the red flag, the No. 1 team could Not repair the car, since NASCAR rules prevent repairs to cars during red flag periods. Since the incident was of the normal racing variety, should an exception been made and McMurray's team been allowed to work on the car during the red flag?
