Thats just not true, the 48 team has been penalized in the past by NASCAR. Whatcha gonna do, stop bein a fan if Kyle dont make the chase. Im sure we will all miss all 25 of you. LOL If Kyle dont make the chase it will be because of all the distractions he creates around himself......speeding tickets.......being "rowdy".......mistak es measuring the car at the shop......Rodgers said it was a mistake made at the 18 shop, so, they did this to themselves. Be mad at them, not NASCAR.
NO. I will continue to root for him as I root for Jeff Gordon. My point was 5 time Jimmy Johnson doesn't get the penalities as often as Harvick,Kyle & other drivers do, even though he has many infractions. What Kyle does on the highway is his business & the state patrol. If he wasn't "rowdy" he wouldn't have half the fans he has now; and yes he does have plenty of fans. If you don't believe it check on all the paraphernalia he sells; t-shirts, hats, sweaters & etc. I'm sure he will make the Chase. He still is in 5th place, 31 points below Cousin Carl. I did not say I was mad at anyone or NASCAR for if I was my TV would be tuned to another station. I said I would be angry... period.

that was under the old point system. not this year. Ron quit being a cry baby. man up!!! you can not speak anyway. your interviews stink!
Yeah but the question is, does 150 pts last season amount closer to 25 this season or 6? 6x25 is 150, so looks like 1 team got shafted with some backwards math. lol

JGR got caught cheating again? This time all 3 cars? Unapproved part! They say possible penalties coming on Tuesday.

Heads may roll at JGR cause Coach isn't going to put up with cheating.

Seems like several posters who appear to be fans of the Weed have been taking pot shots at J. Johnson, making totally unsubstantiated claims of cheating.
How about looking at the rumors that the Gibbs cars are running extra HP and traction control with NASCAR being bought off by Toyota.

Well, well, well, looks like the old coach needs shake some his staff up concerning their intigrity, or apparent lack of. If this was something one of the HMS teams had been caught doing, people would be rioting in the streets, burning cars already in righteous indignation. Maybe this spot of apple rot goes all the way to the top of the barrell at JGR. Caught cheating two weeks in a row, that's bold.

JGR's recent snaffus is really a outstanding example of how teams get marked as cheaters when cheating was not their intent. JGR isn't one of my favorite teams and I really love to slam the sh*t of them but truthfully, I doubt there was an intent to do anything with the oil pans other than improve it reliability. BUT, a rule is a rule and if the rule requires parts to be approved before their use, then using them without approval is cheating. This same type activity kept Chad Knaus in hot water for several years at HMS and gave him a reputation as a cheater. If the Coach really wants the public to not perceive his people as cheaters, he needs to have a press conference with those responsible for making the decision to use the unapproved parts and require them to publicly apologize and reassure the public the intent was not to cheat. This incident really highlights the vunerability of the teams in how they run their operation in the publics eye.

lmao Oh but the intent was indeed to cheat. We know damn well a 'new and improved' part does not go onto the CAR before you handle introducing it thru proper channels. They probably wanted it to go unnoticed so's not to draw attention, maybe have an advantage before anyone catches on.

That was a sneaky deceptive thing to do because they didn't announce they had the part, they were gonna let it fly under the radar if possible. Note - it isn't a measurement that was slightly off, it was a whole different part with a significant weight difference.

Oil pan issue wasn't cheating, just didn't get daddy's permission. And on a previous comment that Brad said Kyle was an ass, it just adds to Kyle's racing persona. Love it! Go Kyle.
