smerfnablin: But! Never fear! I trust that Danzero, vegaswench and turbocat will all be cheering for the 48 at least for the first 4 or 5 races!

StormChaser: bluorangefyre: StormChaser: bluorangefyre: (and really, would NASCAR suspend Jeff Gordon?)

Sadly, no.  I thought for sure they'd park him after his stunt at Phoenix last year.  Instead he got a "Now Jeffy, play nice.." warning. Which is another thing I don't understand.  Jeff can put another driver into the wall (And technically, Clint could have been killed by that little stunt.) and gets away with a slap on the wrist.  But pit late in the race to give your team mate a bump? That's $300,000 and a Congressional hearing. Really?

Well there are those who are so big in the sport that they wouldn't dare suspend them lest they have a revolt by the fans.  Did they suspend Richard Petty when he won with an engine that was too big?  Did they fine Dale Earnhardt for putting drivers into the wall?

So what DOES Jeff have to do to get suspended?

Kill another driver while doing lines of coke off a hookers ass.

What kind of name for a race is Enjoy Illinois anyway?

From what I've seen, it's corruption and inferior pizza

bluorangefyre: There may not even be a MWR team at Daytona. NAPA is re-evaluating their sponsorship, as well as 5-Hour Energy.

You just know RCR and Hendrick are salivating over NAPA looking for a new team, hell even Tony Stewart might even send Danica out to give handies in the hospitality tent next week.

If I had a nickel for every time NASCAR changed the Chase field, I'd own Sunoco.

Sugarpuss O'Shea: I guess until it hurts shareholders it doesn't matter.

NASCAR is a Privately held corporation, there are no shareholders outside of the family which is why they can do whatever the hell they want.

OtherLittleGuy: Koch Brothers?

I suppose a "Quiz Show Scandal" revealing the kayfabe would never see light of day?

/cmon, Wikileaks...

I think the Koch Brothers based their business dealings on the France family

I'm surprised they just make the chase to 16 drivers and tell the other 27 drivers to take the last 10 races off

That way we can get the classic IROC race of champions

/make it better and have chad setup all 16 cars...

Helton looked today like he'd been on a 5 day bender, and judging from the ruling, I suspect a lot of alcohol was involved.

I'm glad NASCAR is doing something, but they did it wrong.  They should have shortened the chase to 9 races and made everyone race in this week.

/Oh and can we get an Indy Car style Push to Pass button, that would be really cool.
