An auto racing pit stop for refueling but not changing tires. Often occurs near the end of the race and under green flag conditions, when limiting time in the pits is deemed more important than fresh rubber. This pit strategy is also used to gain positions under yellow flag conditions, when other cars are taking tires. Considered a risky move at those tracks that wear tires quickly. Not changing tires can add seconds a lap to a car's times.
Dale Earnhardt, Jr., does not have a enough Sunoco fuel to make it to the end of the race. He will be coming into the pits in three laps for a gas-and-go, says crew chief Lance McGrew.
