What do people think does anybody think nascar brings  out fake cautions on purpose?

I think over the past few years they have.

To keep their favorites from going a lap down and to keep from having green flag pitstops i think as it would scatter the field.

And to keep the field close together and to keep the races from being snorefests i think nascar sometimes deliberatley bring out a caution.

Sorry.  I just thought it was a given that Nascar has been throwing 'convenient' cautions for years.  They ar particularly fond of doing it near the end of a 'cookie cutter' race to close up the field.  That way they can braga bout the 'close' finish, thus ignoring the fact that the majority of the race (except for the first 5 laps after a caution) resemble a parade rather than a race. Didn't mean to hit a nerve there.

These tracks do feature a lot more action in the middle of the pack than toward the front.  Saturday night was another great example.  

Kurt Busch ran away with this one.  Michael Waltrip and Brian Vickers led mostly during the periods immediately following cautions.
