I still have not heard the results of the investigation as to where the water came from. This is a big deal with as many points and dollars as there are on the line with each race especially this late in the year. This incident also caused a wreck that took other drivers out. They need to do whatever it takes to make sure this does not happen again.

TB- They've traced the water back to the transporter that brought the fuel to the track...

I am an Engineer on a 9000hp Tow boat and we burn around 10,000 gallons of fuel a day and have a capacity of 165,000 gallons of fuel. WE CHECK OUR TANKS FOR WATER TWICE A DAY. I can't believe they have no safeguards pteventing this from happening. It is not like this is an uncommon thing to happen. They really screwed the pooch on that one. All it takes is a stick with a little water finding paste on the end of it and stick it in the tank and pull it out and if there is water in th fuel then the paste will change colors. It is that simple as water is heavier than fuel and goes to the bottom of the tank. For Nascar being so high tech they were pretty stupid on this one.
