What is the free pass in NASCAR?

Cars go a lap down when they get passed by the leader, when the caution comes out, the last car who went a lap down gets a free pass and he can go all the way around to the tail-end of the lead lap cars, thus, putting him/her on the same lap as the leader(s).

What is the NASCAR Lucky Dog rule?

In Nascar racing why do some drivers hope for a yellow flag and how do they benefit?

Some drivers want a yellow flag (caution flag) to come out so that they can get their car adjusted or fueled or whatever without going a lap down. If they did this during a regular green flag lap they would most likely go a lap down. A caution also closes the field up. You're running at Pocono and your car has finally started working with the track. Unfortunately, you're in 19th, there are only 24 cars on the lead lap and the leader's a quarter-mile behind you. If you stay out on a long green-flag run, you're going to be a lap down in a very short time. But if someone cuts a tire and a caution comes out, everyone gets to close up behind the leader...and, with good work in the pits, you may even come out a couple spots ahead.

Where would a lap car go after a caution on the track?

It depends,1. If they are the first car 1 lap down they get the lap back (this is called, "Lucky Dog.") They then are the last car in line and they are back on the lead lap.2. If not the first lap car they just keep their position in relation to the other cars. So if they are 5 cars behind the the first place car, they stay 5 cars behind the first place car.3. If all cars in front of them pit (lapped or not) and they do not then their car would be right behind the pace car on the restart. I have only seen this done a couple times.4. If they choose to pit then they are added to the back in the order they left the pits.Cars on the lead lap get to pit first. Cars a lap or more down have to wait until the second caution lap that the pits are open. So if all cars on the track pit then all lapped cars are behind the cars on the lead lap.This only applies to NASCAR. Other racing organisations have different rule regarding this.

Why did all of the lap cars start in front of the first place cars at the Kansas race after the red flag in Sundays race?

the lapped cars starts in the front because they are kind lucky dogs in the race. if you were the first car down a lap, and a caution came out, you'd be the luck dog.
