This makes much more sense to me. I have always thought that the original penalties were overkill:

>>Gibbs' penalties reduced by appeals panel UPDATE: According to reports from media at the NASCAR Research & Development Center, the National Stock Car Racing Appeals Panel has modified the penalties accessed to Matt Kenseth's #20 team:
Kenseth's points penalty has been reduced from 50 to 12;
Joe Gibb's owner points penalty has been reduced from 50 to 12;
Gibb's suspension was eliminiated;

The manufacturer's point penalty to Toyota has been increased from 5 to 7 points;
Kenseth's win at Kansas will now count for the Chase;
Crew Chief Jason Ratcliff's suspension has been reduced from 6 races to 1. His fine remains at $200,000.
The appeal panel consisted of Mark Arute (Stafford Motor Speedway), Denis McGlynn (Dover Raceway) and Jack Housby (former team owner).(5-8-2013)<<

This is a more reasonable penalty. Way to go Joe Gibbs racing.

I just hope that after this incident that Nascar realizes that discriminating against certain drivers IS noticed.

He seemed like he didn't care that Matt was leaving him. I'd love for Matt to win a title and shove it down jacks throat.

they interviewed Jack , he said he was sorry that Matt decieded to leave but , theres no use crying over spilled milk , it was Matts choice and he wished him luck , what did you want Jack to do , I think hes a class act ...

Being a Ford Racing Fan, I had a hard time sticking with Kenseth after he jumped ship to Toyota and to Joe Gibbs for that matter (I hate the Redskins), but I still support Matt as a driver and think he still has what it takes to make the Hall of Fame. Basically what I'm saying is that I still like him enough to be the driver that I bet on so GO MATT GO!!!!!!!
