remember the bouncy shocks Chadie used in Dover a few years back. Seemed like as the shocks worked they seemed to stay up putting more down force on the frontend. NASCAR officials let the car settle for an hour before they measured it and certified the win. Don't put anything past Knaus.

Why wasn't the other 42 crew chiefs worried that their cars wasn't going to pass inspection after bump drafting all day? Clint bowyers car passed post race inspection after 500 miles of bump drafting. No wonder JJ finished mid-pack, he didn't want to wreck his car.

My oh My, what a tangled web Chad weaves, thinking no one would know. but it appears JJ was fully aware of it. Nascar needs to inspect Edwards car.
