Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger was in the house for pole day at the newly renamed Auto Club Speedway of Southern California on Friday and met with the seven Golden State natives currently driving in the NASCAR ...

Gordon was docked 100 points for an unapproved front bumper cover on the No. 7 Dodge during the initial inspection for the Daytona 500. Gordon's crew chief Frank Kerr received an additional fine of $100,000, was suspended for six races and will remain under probation for the rest of the season. Until the appeal is heard, Kerr will be allowed to remain at the racetrack. However, the deduction on points stays.

"We're going to jail for a crime we didn't commit," Gordon said on Friday. "It's almost like putting yourself in the position where someone steals your car and robs a bank, and because it was your car, you're going to jail. I don't think this is a fair penalty, and obviously, we'll have to appeal it.

"My sponsors, Jim Beam, and everybody else are behind us as a race team. They feel that we have not done anything wrong, and they're confident thatNASCAR will make the right decision once they hear the whole appeal process
