What is a competition caution? When Jeff Gordon starts to fall back, that's when they call a competiton caution.

a competitive caution is pre-arranged and all teams know about it prior to the race starting...they know exactly what lap it will occur...prior to the start of the race...it has nothing to do with any driver, team or standings....even if a caution appears before that lap...the competitive caution will still happen...

learn Nascar rules and these questions will not happen....

So when a competitive caution is called, do cars have the ability to change race running order?

why would anyone need to run hard, or worry about how far back they fall when there will be a competition caution called in a few laps and then there right back with the pack. it takes racing out of the sport, what sport is really left in it.
American Lemans is where the real racing occurs or just about any track that has right and left hand turns. but thats a whole other subject.

There is nothing wrong with asking questions. I've been watching Nascar for a very long time and there are still things that happen that I've never seen before. I think it's wonderful that now days there is this sort of technology to ask such questions.

A "competition caution" is just another in a long list of reasons why NA$CRAP sucks. Take ALL the variables and danger out of a race and what have you got, 4 hours of torture...or NA$CRAP for short!

i think nascar fan is right. asking questions is what the forum are for. ridiculing others is not fair. and acrimonious they are trying to take as many dangers out so that what happened in 2001 does not happen agian. if you dont like nascar why are you looking at nascar forums.

nascar12nc says "...if people complain about Nascar they need to stop watching if they dont like things"

So if you dont like new laws and taxes you should quit voting?

If you dont like the service at a store you should just stop shopping?

It seems to me that this country was literally founded on the principle that if you dont like something you should ask questions and try to change it. Perhaps YOU would like to be under Brittish rule but not me.

Have a day.

Horrific crashes are the only reason we watch this boring "sport". Rules like this take the fun out of it.

They used to race. Now Nascar has competition cautions when the track is green. Cautions for debris we seldom see. Chase, you name it. It is no longer real racing. Heck after 36 races, you can be in 20th position, end up in the chase because of wins and a 11th or 12th position racer can be out of the chase. Somehow, everytime Nascar messes with the race, they ruin it more.....

Competition caution, well in truck racing you are not allowed to gain space between your self and the driver in fron of you if your kicking up dirt you'll be black flagged their is a set pace once you have your comp caution and it usually happens in the third lap of a nine lap race

I've been watching from the first broadcast ( with the big fight ) a few things are not needed in nascar , competition cautions , the chase , the announcers saying goodyear tires and Sunoco fuel for every car that comes in the pits , and the lucky dog , are some of my dislikes

Those are some great examples, but by no means all of them, for how unprofessional NASCAR is. It isn't a serious motorsport but rather simply a show. It's just about amusing fans in any way necessary, no matter how absurd, and slapping sponsors anywhere they can make a few extra bucks. Yes, sponsorship funds teams and motorsports in general, but NASCAR took it to ridiculous extremes. I'm waiting for the children of driver's to start being named by sponsors. "NASCAR is pleased to announce the birth of healthy baby boy Mountain Dew Earnhardt."

What the hell is "Boogity boogity boogity?" How can we take that mindless nonsense seriously? It's like commentators are jangling keys in front of their audience like they're babies that need to be stimulated. Wait, I get it - DW was hired because they're obligated to employ so many of the mentally handicapped.
