mulligan
 n.— «Conventional wisdom has held that drivers can afford one “mulligan,” which is NASCAR parlance for a damaging result. In the Chase era, no champion has finished outside the top 25 more than once. But that margin for error should tighten, because the expanded field creates more competition to leapfrog.» —“10 things to watch out for in the Chase for the Cup” by Nate Ryan USA Today Sept. 13, 2007.
