So close, haulers. So close.

As NASCAR moves to change its at-track merchandising system by replacing the central merchandising tent with the driver-specific haulers that the tent replaced in 2015, there were bound to be some hiccups at Charlotte Motor Speedway this weekend. But we can’t say we saw the misspelling of a driver’s name coming.

We’re not sure how that’s a mistake that gets made in the first place. While Cassill doesn’t drive for one of NASCAR’s bigger teams, he has over 230 Cup Series starts. He’s not exactly an unknown driver. And how do you misspell his name while getting Matt DiBenedetto’s correct?

Maybe this should be blamed on autocorrect.
