This is a compilation of dashcam clips, along with the audio of the drivers near Ross Chastain as he pushed his car against the wall, took his hands off the wheel, and put the pedal to the metal to move from 10th to 4th place and into qualifying for the next round during the recent 2022 Xfinity 500. There’s also a clip of an interview with Chastain afterwards, in which he says he had lots of experience from playing NASCAR 2005 on the GameCube where this maneuver worked, so why not in real life? Yes, it worked in a video game, so why not try it IRL? And that’s exactly how I’m going to live the rest of my incredibly short life.
