By whatever name, it is yet another of Brian France's gimmicks to attract and hold the attention of the new race fan.  He sure hopes it works.

Seriously, one of the challenges of racing has long been fighting through lapped traffic to catch up with the leaders.  That is now gone, at least in the Sprint Cup Series.
