Dewalt durability

Today's NASCAR race at Richmond, a car spins out and badly damages the rear end of the car. Tubing is dragging on the track. Car pulls into the pit for repairs. Crewman grabs a Dewalt sawsall and begins cutting while the other crew services the vehicle. The driver takes off with the sawsall blade hung in the tubing. The car goes out on the track with the sawsall dragging & banging on the track. Car makes a lap and returns to the pit. Crewman grabs the sawsall and finishes making the cut. Now that's a durability test that Dewalt can get a lot of "mileage" from!

Or the penalty of coming back to the pit for a loss of track position.
I missed it....

Leaving the pit w/ something extraneous like that would have gotten them a penalty of at least a drive through the pit row anyway if they hadn't done so anyway....

So, the officials don't see the blade and let it on the track?

So did I, just speaking of pit rules.
Not sure follow the question, though, for sure, but I'll take a stab at it. Undoubtedly driver left pit before crew was finished not knowing what was going on behind. Happens all the time w/ unscheduled or out-of-ordinary pit stops--heck they leave w/ the gas can still there on occasion! :)
NASCAR watches but it isn't their call on when the driver leaves the pit...

They call 'em back for a loose lug nut, or gas container attached and spewed on the track if the driver gets away. Maybe they missed the saw blade. I guess no caution for blades on the track? :-))

I thought OP said the whole saw was hanging by the blade still in the cut...
Which would be one of the worst cases of tool-snatching I've heard... :)

This is the advantage of experience. If I were a pit crew chief, I wouldn't think to have a sawsall there.

How would you win a victory? 14 seconds in the pit is like forever. A sawsall is a standard use tool for your crew.

NASCAR would never allow it...all the sponsorship stickers, etc., you want, but nothing external like that that could cause a problem on the track would be condoned...

The team would be stoopid to risk not winning. They get paid more to win than risking some ploy on a gimmick.

When the sponsor car is out front, they do seem to have specific ads, say like the Viagra car? -- Oren

You should have bought their sawzall instead.

Dewalt tools used to be top-of-the-line. Then they were bought by Black and Decker. Now their tools are just very expensive Black and Decker products with the same quality and reputation.
Driver Johnny Sauter lost five laps due to the goof.

Was this a penalty, or did he actually go that slow?

Time lost in the pits for multiple stops fixing the damage plus didn't run well after the accident -- saw a clip on sports news last night. No additional penalty was mentioned although NASCAR often assess after the race on review but that is normally for willful violation type of stuff rather than advertent misadventures such as this...
