I would like to make a request to Nascar directives.
Seems to me that last race, Juan Pablo Montoya lost the opportunity to win his first Oval due to a caution caused by a car that was lapped.
My suggestion:
Couldn't be a good idea to send to the garage those car that are lapped.
They have no chance to win the race and on the contrary cause damage to the ones that really have the opportunity to win the race.
It is acceptable that a wreck is caused by those who are in the lead lap cause they struggling for a better position.

I think I am not the only one who have thought about it.

can't happen. The drivers are racing for more than a win. There are points,earnings, etc. etc. that matter no matter how many laps down they are. That is why you see crews working feverishly to get the wrecked cars back on the track as quickly as they can. I have seen cars come out of the garage over fifty laps down with less than twenty to go because every lap run makes a difference.

That part I know, the sponsors.
But at least make them to maintain a pace or something.
They can't drive as if they competing for first place or something like that.
What is it to run at 185 mph when your 2 laps down and end up against the wall.
I think that there is something that can be done.
Your lapped two or more and the race is about to end, Keep the bottom and do xxx mph.

There's already a minimum speed...and lapped / slower cars are flagged when leaders approach to move over

Minimum speed is different to maximum speed allowed to lapped cars.
If the cars is not doing the minimum speed it is got flagged.
But if you are lapped, and 50 miles to go, then lapped cars can reach certain speed to avoid that those cars provoke a caution.
Your lapped remaining a few laps, come on take it easy
boy.

I don't think even Montoya would like this rule. Most races it would be him being asked to leave the track. Like nobody has lost out on a win due to a Montoya crash, happens almost every week.

I agree with you, get the non-contenders off the track, but NASCAR is more about being a rolling billboard.

Most of the time Montoya has been involved in a crash he has been on lead lap and most of the time he has been wrecked

All they have to do to fix a big part of the problem is take Mike Wallace off the track.

He should be on the lead lap, he usually wrecks within the first 25 laps. Then when he returns to the tracks he is several laps down, or one of the "more than 1, last 50 to go." I'm sure he wasn't at fault for every single incident, but they guy has hit everything but the jet dryer on the track, no wait he hit that too.

get all the no good, lousy, waste of space drivers off the track: Kvapil, cassil, nemechek, Schrader, mears, stremme, reutimann, ragan, gilliliand, burton. Half the field. Itll eliminate most of the cautions if they get rid of those clowns.
