The Associated Press reported Wednesday that the engine failed inspection because one of the connecting rods did not meet the minimum weight requirement and NASCAR was discussing possible penalties.

Those retards. Not the people handing out penalties, the engine builders.

 The car would have been slightly FASTER if that rod had been equal weight with the rest. They shaved off a quarter gram( or whatever) too much weight on one rod and hurt the balance slightly and cost them the race and probably some cash.

Jimmie Johnson reminds me of SEC football: you can get caught blatantly cheating, and it can become national news, but the ruling body will simply pretend that it didn't happen.

Guy can drive, but my gawd he's got to be the most boring personality in Nascar ever! I would rather watch concrete dry than to see him win a race or do a post race interview.

What_Would_Jimi_Do: this weekend JPM will be driving the #42 Depends Chevy.

nascarcasm @nascarcasm

Confusion and repulsion will abound on Saturday if Juan's Depends-sponsored #42 car is assessed a stop-and-go penalty.

smerfnablin: Its "he who shall not be named" or else we get yelled at

Seriously if these they are going to pull Kenseth's engine, they need to go looking for Kyle Busch's engine from 2 weeks ago.

They did

From the article:
Kenseth's car passed an initial postrace inspection, but the engine was brought back to NASCAR's Research and Development Center in Concord, N.C., for further evaluation -- as it always is with the winning car -- where it failed.

Busch's engine was either clean or they missed it at that time. Since Kyle and Matt are teammates I doubt they are hawking Kenseth but letting Rowdy slide.

Those operating the idol(s) will be dealt with accordingly:

/seriously, I'm beginning to think Hendrick has bought off NASCAR
//and now they're eliminating threats to Johnson
///watch the Chase be filled with drivers who never run good because everybody else in the top 10 has been penalized to oblivion
