Recall reading about NASCAR “cheats” - things not yet forbidden by the rules.

One driver pulled out of the inspection zone not realizing the fuel tank had been removed to verify that its capacity was within the rules. Seems he had a few feet of 2” copper pipe in the middle of his fuel line. Held an extra gallon or two.

Oops!

Rules were amended to fully spec the fuel line

I think that was attributed to Smokey Yunick
