Jr was wrong to retaliate. Period. It was just a thing. It happens.
I understand the anger but it can't be used with the vehicle.

I think they could have waited till they got out of the car and maybe got into each other's faces, but not use the car. Maybe Jr will be the new bad boy of Nascar, lol.

This is why there should be a ring set up for after the race. You have a beef with someone, take it to the ring. I'd pay for tickets just to see that.

What was the punishment that CE and Rowdy got last year, was it not points docking and such? It seems like there is a double standard when Jr is concerned!

Can Nascar really afford to have the golden boy benched for six weeks?? I think not!

On Monday NASCAR stated they were not going to take any action. Guess when people protested that they were not consistent (again) in their penalties they changed their mind. They had already shown their preferential treatment by Monday's decision. If Jr. contends he did not intend to wreck other drivers at Daytona, why couldn't he accept that Mears did not intend to wreck him?? Not that I agree with Mears action on pit road as there could have been injuries there.

Six weeks probation doesn't mean he has to sit out, it means he better watch his *ss cuz if he screws up there will be penalties.
