Attachment In October of 2022, NASCAR driver Ross Chastain performed a "wall-riding" trick during an official race, a move that he learned from performing it a lot in NASCAR 2005. The move had him slam the car into the track's outer wall causing him to continue speeding without having to slow down on a turn, enabling him to instantly move from 10th to 5th place of the race and enter the next stage of the Championship. Chastain explained that as a kid he "played a lot of NASCAR 2005 on the GameCube" and often performed the move but wasn't sure if it would work in real-life. Despite the move being widely applauded by fans for its creativity, he later stated that he would never perform the move again, because he still did not know how it worked in real-life and that performing it was "not pleasant".

On January 31st, 2023, NASCAR officially announced that performing the move would not be tolerated due to safety concerns, citing existing rule which addresses safety concerns on a case-by-case basis.
