He will lose the next appeal too. The only reason he appealed was to make it appear that he didn't cheat. If you listen he never has said the C-posts were legal. His only response has been the templates fit. Well I'm sure they do after he modified the body to accommodate the illegal C-posts which affect the drag on the rear spoiler.

he also said he used them last year at Talledaga when he told JJ if you win , make sure you wreck the rear end. oh yeah, he knows they are illegal and JJ knew it also. this last appeal may reduce the suspenions to less races due to the man hearing this has only heard 3 appeals since taking over in late 2010 and he did reduce the penalies. so mr hendrick will pay him off with a new corvette.!!!!!!!! we shall await & see.

NASCAR needs to wise up someone is libel to do a take over to rescue the sport because current management clearly can not do the job at hand. Fans will go with a sport that has integrity and fairness for all participants. and the current group will be left wondering with their hangovers...JMO There are enough billionaires to do it..:D
