The paved portion of a racetrack on the extreme inside. Analogous to a highway shoulder, the apron often flattens out considerably -- a marked transition from the banking of the actual racing grooves. Daring or desperate drivers sometimes use the apron to pass, or to compensate for a tight condition in their racecars and get them to turn. However, the abrupt transition of the apron can also snap a car loose and force a spin.
Dale Earnhardt, Jr., has spun coming out of turn four. A tire might have gone down, or else he went so low onto the apron, he snapped loose.

Auto racing term for a ball of rubber on the track that has come off of a tire. Usually used in the plural. Multiple marbles take over entire racing lanes on the outside of normal racing grooves or lanes. Marbles decrease grip, causing cars to crash in corners. Drivers compare driving on marbles to driving on ice.
Dale Earnhardt, Jr., has been making great time on the high side. But that was too high. He got up into the marbles and slapped the wall.

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.
