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.
