NASCAR fans from around the racing world are upset about a controversial new rule for the sport.
On Wednesday, NASCAR revised its previous rules for improperly installed wheels.
Even if a wheel falls off in the pit box, it can still be ruled a penalty.
Here's the full rule description, per NASCAR insider Bob Pockrass:
"During an Event, any loss or separation of an improperly installed tire(s)/wheel(s) from the vehicle will result in a Penalty. As determined by NASCAR, improperly installed tire(s)/wheel(s) remaining in the immediate area of the team's pit box without posing a safety concern may result in a penalty."
Fans from around the NASCAR world took to Twitter to react to this rule change.
"'Without posing a safety concern' but why? If there’s no safety concern, and it doesn’t leave the pit box, why is there a need for a penalty. Might as well penalize for an air gun jam, or if a hose gets stuck under that car, how about if they throw a water bottle out the window!" one wrote.
"Only #NASCAR could go from having arguably the worst race they've ever had only to back it up with the most unnecessary rule they've made," another added.
"NASCAR just gets dumber and dumber," another said.
