A buddy of mine thinks that these fines are NASCAR's way of making up revenue lost because of fewer fans in the stands. I say, keep handing out these huge fines and a lot of teams will be folding up their tents for sure. They sure seem to enjoy punishing their participants, might just be time to change their name to S&MCAR.

Just wondering was Jimmy Johnson docked that many points and have that high fines the many times he and his team were caught cheating. I can't remember. It's no wonder the sport is going down the tubes. After 50yrs I have hardly no interest in it.

With these extreme sanctions, they should at least have some form of hearing of the teams competitors to see what they think about it. If they feel they didn't get cheated then the penalty can be much less. Tempering with a fuel tank is much more serieus than the rod being too light because it may be a safety issue, although each case must be looked at individualy (who knows in this case they might have made it safer!). Unless the altered it to hold more fuel ofcourse..
