NASCAR Taking Closer Look At #33 Car

If NASCAR decides to penalize Bowyer points for an infraction, then this could seriously hurt him in the championship chase.

Bowyer penalized 150 points. What a crock. Hamlin's car didn't pass post-race inspection either but you see no fine there.
Do you have a link where it says Hamlin's car failed. Cant find it.

NASCAR spent an extended amount of inspection time with the #11-Denny Hamlin and #48-Jimmie Johnson cars which failed to pass the height sticks in the first attempt. While the officials took pictures of the cars for insurance, after the shocks cooled down both cars made it through the height sticks on the second attempt. NASCAR took the #33-Clint Bowyer and #6-David Ragan cars to the technical center for further analysis as well as engines going from the #33, #11, #6, #46-Michael McDowell cars (FoxSports)(9-20-2010)
Cars failing the height sticks on the first attempt isn't that rare of an occurrence. Would definitely like to get some more information on the 33 car. Better the 33 than the 31.

There are a lot of things teams can do. When it comes to who is smarter, I’ll just say that there’s strength in numbers. There are more people in the garage working on ways to bend the system,than there are NASCAR officials trying to figure it all out.”
It’s this very special cat-and-mouse game that makes NASCAR what it is. It’s not about to change anytime soon. Not to say i agree with it,or that it is right.
