    Dale Jr loses 100 pts

    I thought that was a little stiff for a bracket that really did not help his performance. And suspending the crew chief for 6 races? Seems like 1 or 2 would have sent the message. Ahh well, at least Jeff Gordon is still leading!

    What do you all think?

    I think you have lost your mind.


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    Are we really talking about Nascar?

    brianhos, we finally agree; at least Gordon is leading!!! I think the fine and loss of points is crap. $100,000 is way too much for what happened.

    I'd rather watch the WNBA than Nascar, just my two cents worth.

    Re: Dale Jr loses 100 pts

    The thing that frustrates me is that it seems like NASCAR has very random penalties. I could be wrong but I would love it if they had a rubric or some rule book and the amount that your penalty will be. Being a Jr fan I am a bit bummed out about this one.

    I'm shocked they punished Nascar's favorite son. There's gonna be a redneck riot tonight!

    Go Gordon!

    Re: Dale Jr loses 100 pts

    I'm not a big NASCAR guy, but isn't this roughly the same penalty they gave the guy who was using rocket fuel? Doesn't seem consistent to me...

    Re: Dale Jr loses 100 pts

    The penalty does not fit the infraction...however, NASCAR is sending a message that they will not tolerate any tampering with the new cars. I too am a Jr fan so I hate it, but I know that the message is meant for everyone. The Budweiser car needed some more adversity this year. Looking forward to July so we can hear where he is going next year.

    Re: Dale Jr loses 100 pts

    Am I the only one who thinks that there is a lot more going on behind the scenes...that Nascar isn't releasing more information about its Golden Boy? It just seems odd that his team gets that stiff of penalty for something like that. I would have guessed the standard 4 race crew chief suspension and fine would have been the penalty...like Jimmy Johnson and his team. I just think there is more to the story that we aren't hearing.

    (brianhos, I either applaud you for legitimately bringing up this topic or applaud you for the very subtle dig at us Nascar fans. )

    Re: Dale Jr loses 100 pts

    This is one of many reasons I HATE NASCAR. Let me make this crystal clear. I am a HUGE motorsports fan, but I hate NASCAR.

    The spirit that it was founded on was bringing your hotrod to the track and trying to beat the other guy. That meant getting whatever technical edge you could find. Over the years they have taken the car out of the equation. They are all the exact same. They are trying to make it a driver's series, the problem is, any monkey can drive a NASCAR race. Drive straight, turn left, repeat.

    Tony Stewart was right on the money when he said they are making NASCAR into the WWF, I wish he wouldn't have backed off his statement. Caution flags for no reason, inconsistent penalties, etc.

    On top of that, now you have new tracks popping up all over the place and THEY ARE THE EXACT same and produce boring racing. Chicago, Kansas, Texas, California, etc.

    The world is letting it be known however that they don't like the stuff that is going on. NASCAR is has been showing a ratings decline over the last two years.
