what is nascar overtime?

Sports Al Dente

NASCAR fans have recently witnessed a slew of races that concluded in overtime.

Whether it was Zane Smith's win in the Truck Series opening or Austin Cindric's...

historic win at Daytona International Speedway on Sunday, these races all had one...

thing in common: overtime. So, what is overtime, exactly?

Overtime is a phase in NASCAR races when the race lasts longer than expected.

This is due to a caution in the last laps necessitating an overtime finish. A caution...

could indicate a multiple car accident or another driver running out of gasoline on...

the final lap, according to the association's official website. Two laps make up the...

overtime finish. There will be no more overtime attempts once the cars have taken...

the white flag. This was previously known as a green-white-checkered finish.

If a caution is issued before the white flag is raised for the first time in the race to...

indicate the final lap, the race will be extended by laps to clean up the caution and...

finish under the green flag. This is the point at which overtime kicks in.
