Why is it bull? I like Truex and I would love to see him in the chase again this year. But the one thing I have to get credit to NASCAR is their consistancy in handing out penalties for COT infractions. If they did not penaltize the 1 car than the 66, 70 and 99 this year would need to have their points returned.

It's a shame it happened and I'm sure it was a mistake well at least I hope it was a mistake but all teams know what happens when these type of issues arrise.

Nascar might be consistent with their penalties now, but they are not consistent in other ways. How about rescinding penalties for speeding on pit road? Just a chosen few get away with it. Tony and a few others don't get away with it. They just happen to have the wrong last name.

Why must you change the subject.. Totally wacked!!

But since you brought it up I guess it goes both ways.. Why does NASCAR allow a driver to qualify twice because a team forgets to pull the tape off the hood (KB at Sonoma). Why did NASCAR not pentalize KB for running over his air hose in his pit at Loudon, ask Biffle if that was fair? So you say, it's only for a few chosen few I guess that includes KB.

Dang, take it to someone that wants to argue.. Trust me I'm not that one.

Have a great one!

Hey... you never know.. Right now it looks like the following rides are going to be open.

33 - RCR
20 - JGR
12 - Penske

If Truex leaves then the 1 will be open.

going to be interesting.

I was kind of hoping Truex with go with Smoke.
