NASCAR Taking Closer Look At #33 Car

29 posts in this topic

Does NASCAR not realize this could've happened when the #33 was slammed by the wrecker after the race to help him get back to victory lane?

If a car passes pre-race and post-race inspection at the track then the body should be ok. The engine is somthing they need to disassemble to varify specs. When NASCAR is looking for a few thousands of an inch here or there, they are really looking for a reason to to take someone out of the running.

More often than not a part deemed to be unapproved isn’t discovered by way of an inspection, but rather through NASCAR officials being tipped off by one of the competitors in the garage.

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.

I understand rules are rules but I find it hard to believe that a thousandth of an inch is the reason Bowyer won that race. I know that the winning cars are always looked over a little more than the others but if it passed all pre race inspections something must of happened during the race to cause the difference. I truly hope this isn't NASCAR getting its fingers in where it doesn't belong. This isn't the WWE. Some people are saying NASCAR wants the 48 to win again but I think that would be horrible for NASCAR and the sport.

They oughta take the damn win away too and give it to Hamlin!! Set precedent for Chase rules.

The car at Richmond ALMOST was illegal.............this one IS illegal.

Excellent article regarding the penalties...

Take note the end about the two truck driver. This appeal should be interesting...but know NASCAR's dictating ways, this bogus penalty will stand. Not to mention he PASSED pre-race inspection on this same item. It's bogus, and NASCAR will continue to dig it's own grave unless they fix it.

Jimmie had the same thing happen to him a few years back and they didnt take points. One reason i hardly follow Nascar anymore. They need to be even with the rules across the board. Not have favorites.

Oh, yes. And Jimmie + Knaus are sweet little angels that have never even thought of approaching the grey area of the rulebook in their lives. :rolleyes:

Frankly, it doesn't matter whether NASCAR is in the right or wrong here. There are no winners in this situation, only losers, with NASCAR, not Bowyer, being the largest one.
