At NASCAR's restrictor plate races, you're not allowed to pass below a certain point on the race track. But for a sport based on pushing the limits of speed, it seems pretty silly to limit passing with an out-of-bounds line. The rule caused rookie Regan Smith (#01) to be stripped of his win at Talladega in October 2008 after making an aggressive move towards the track apron to muscle his way by Tony Stewart (#20).
