That would be a bit ridiculously out of character and extreme even for NASCAR. When was the last time they parked a driver for bumping like that? Not trying to be sarcastic, just relying on my not-so-great memory.

I don't think Mr. H would be too pleased with Jr's actions.

Here's something to test that memory! When has any driver received further sanctions from NASCAR after being put on "probation", lol! It's a joke, why do they bother?

I think NASCAR is more exciting when there is a little personality out there. The rivalries can make things more interesting. Every sport has them.

Most of the time, that I can remember, when a driver is put on probation, he usually watches his p's and q's and doesn't screw up to receive further sanctions from the Nascar board.

Windy, we agree on something, NASCAR mostly does the "Probation Thing" for the fans and press, actually Joonyer and Casey made NASCAR proud interjecting some personality. NASCAR understands that personality clashes like this are the best ticket sellers that they could have, especially in this time of economic problems and bland spec car racing. Hell, it was a fight between the Allisons and Cale on national TV that is seen by many as the ONE INCIDENT most responsible for putting national exposure excitement in NASCAR. I remember the next race after the "Daytona Fight", I had great Richmond tickets and for the first time you saw droves of people with signs that read NEED TICKETS, I could have sold my seats for triple value. This was the year that it snowed a couple of days before Race Weekend in Richmond and there was still some snow in the old stands on race day and it was so cold that my wife and I left about 2/3rds through the race because we could not feel out feet.

Nascar has been going downhill since about 1995, and jumped the shark after Winston left.

Yuppies, go back to F1 racing! Leave our sport alone!!

Mears next offense will result in loss of points and maybe suspension. Jr's next offense will result in more probation. This was a joke.

I will not reply to the rude and obscene and way off base comments that you and some others sometimes post. I replied to a statement you made and thought that we could have a decent conversation about it but I guess you aren't willing to do that.

I have a facebook page for my friends from highschool and there is a quiz on there about the five people you would most like to punch in the face. You guessed it. Kyle was one of mine. lol
