Why not penalize Vickers too?

My opinion, they went way overboard on the Kyle crashing Hornaday. It didn't come close to being as dangerous as the race crashes, like when Brad dumped Carl etc. So I agree with no penalty for Vickers.

Vickers should have been parked just like Shrub. If NASCAR leaves that as the standard for how they will handle on-track retaliation, it will stop.

Vickers wasn't on probation and was at least smart enough to do it under green where Nascar has to make the judgment call if it was just racing or intentional. Kryle Bush did it under caution where there was no question and he was already on probation. Only ignorant people can't see the difference.

Kyle did it under caution, Vickers did it under green.
