Ridiculous...
He's human and his reaction was of such... after such a stupid and ridiculous decision made by Barnhart and the track marshals it should have been them to receive the penalty for risking the lives of the drivers...
I wonder if something more serious had happened if any of them would have suffered any consequences...

Well paying a $30,000 dollar fine won't bother Roger Penske much, and I suppose the point about family friendly TV coverage has some truth, but I still think Barnhart was far more in the wrong and he appears to have got off scot free. Shame on Indycar!

I think the wrong person was fined. While the gesture was uncalled for, after what happened I probably would have done the same. Maybe $10,000 would have been more appropriate.

"Indycar suggested that Power would be able to "work off" the fine through a series of public appearances on behalf of IndyCar for the remainder of the season."

If I was Will I would say "shove it and here is the money, it was worth it" !
