Did you have a point to make? And what's with the personal attack? I assure you, my belly button is right where it belongs and isn't blocking anything.

This is the reason i have lost interest in NASCAR. Less than 1/16 of an inch? Good luck with keeping fans on the telly and in the stands.

This, along with many other issues, is why fans are dumping the sport in record numbers. Do you all realize that the "tolerance" they got Bowyer for is less than the thickness of a quarter? Now tell me, how the hell does that allow a guy to win a race? And, seeing that Bowyer won this race on fuel mileage, that 1/16 th of an inch didn't make one bit of difference. Nascar is so far out of hand, they will see even less fans in the stands next season, and the TV ratings will fall even lower. If they didn't learn from the huge drop of the Richmond race, with ratings going from a 3.4 to a 2.3, they have their heads stuck up their collective butts.

Oh, and why didn't Nascar listen to the reasons behind this "tolerance" issue? Everyone knows that if your car is hit by a huge wrecker truck, like Bowyer's was, and was bumped by numerous other race cars after the race in congratulations, your bumper is going to be off by at least 1/16 th of an inch.

I have to disagree. I think that NASCAR did the right thing with the punishment they handed down. I like the No. 33 but they pushed the boundaries and got caught - twice. You should only have to warn a team once. If NASCAR did nothing, I would be disappointed and then they would lose a fan.

I'm with you. I feel bad for the 33 team but they were over the tolerance. If you let them get away with 1/16 then the next team is going to push it just a bit further and so on. There has to be a line in the sand you just can't cross.

The way I understand it they give you specific numbers you are supposed to be at and then also allow a certain amount just like they do with the speed limit on pit road. If pit road speed is 35 they give you 40 but if you're going 40.1 it's going to be a penalty.

Yes, I understand the reasoning behind not tolerating cheating, but how can anyone ignore the FACT that his car was bumped by a huge wrecker? That alone would cause at least that much of a difference in their tolerance issue.

I'm not sure but it's not thier first rodeo so they may have something in place for the push trucks. I guess if I were crew chief NO BODY would be pushing anything, anywere!

Who gave him the congrad bumps? Chasers or non chasers. I would like to think the drivers are smarter than to hit some ones car heading to inspection. Who knows maybe it was a team mate asked to do it to cover something up maybe it was 1/2 inch off and he didn't get bumped hard enough!
Just thinking out loud. Nascar only lets us know what they think we need to know!
I have never understood why if you pass inspection going into the race why are we inspecting anything but items the crew brings to the stall after the race? Anybody know?

Congratulation Richard Childress and Clint Bowyer. You two are tearing down what made you. Richard Nascar made you rich. Clint they made you knowned in the world of racing. So..... You and Richard kept it going and continue hurting yourself and NASCAR. Rules are made to be followed. And Richard Childress is not above the rules.

Interstate, I watched a replay of the end of the race and Clint was "bumped" four times by other cars during the cool down lap. None were his team mates. I've seen this kind of thing happen all the time after races, especially close ones.

I was just wondering who it was that bumped him
I think I like Denny more every day though and what is up with harvick at practice.

Denny's quote
"You can talk about how small the thing was off and you can really try to say that 60-thousandths didn't help him (Clint Bowyer) perform any better -- that is a crock," Hamlin said Friday. "Let me tell you something, that helps a lot."
