He maneuvered in Nascar imitating video games and it was great | Digital Trends Spanish

A risky maneuver was carried out last weekend by the pilot Ross Chastain in the Xfinity 500 race in nascaras after being in 10th place for a long time, in an extremely daring move on his last lap, he launched his car along the walls of the race track and shot up to 5th.

UNBEATABLE!@RossChastain floors it along the wall to go from 10th to 5th and advance to the CHAMPIONSHIP! #NASCARPlayoffs

Everyone was shocked by the move and asked for the inspiration to make it, Chastain admitting it came out of a video game.

And where did you learn that maneuver? From playing video games as a child, he says.

“I played a lot of NASCAR 2005 on the GameCube I had growing up,” Chastain said with a smile on a post-race interview. “I never knew it would actually work.”

The game-breaking bug is called a “wall walk,” and in all likelihood it could only take place on a track as short as Martinsville Speedway, the site of the race. At just half a mile long, it’s the shortest on the NASCAR circuit, which means its corners are pretty short, too.

“I can’t believe what I just saw,” said one pilot on a NASCAR build. “That was a straight video game.”
