stroking
 n.— «Tweaking the Chase format in such minor ways would be perfectly fine if NASCAR had the courage to address the real problem. The problem isn’t how many people get to be in the 10-race “playoffs,” but the system of how points are counted.…More than any of those platitudes that are nothing more than euphemisms for “points racing” or, in the term that people in the sport once used, “stroking.”» —“Winning should matter more in Nextel points system” by David Poole in Charlotte, North Carolina Mercury News (San Jose, California) Jan. 14, 2007.
