ASCAR isn’t dropping hammer on Hendrick Motorsports team
Violation found on Busch Series winner at Kansas, but no one is getting suspended or losing points

In an apparent reversal of NASCAR practice, Hendrick Motorsports will escape harsh penalties for the violation found on Kyle Busch’s winning car after Saturday’s Busch Series race at Kansas Speedway.

The intake manifold was confiscated following Busch’s victory and, at the time, officials said the manifold failed to meet NASCAR specifications.

NASCAR fined Mike Bumgardner, Busch’s crew chief for the race, $10,000 and place him on probation. The team will receive no other penalty for the infraction.

Hendrick officials still plan to appeal the penalty, contending the manifold was legal, team officials said.

In the past, violations involving intake manifolds in NASCAR’s top three series - Nextel Cup, Busch and Craftsman Trucks - the penalties have nearly always included the loss of points and the suspension of crew chiefs.

The above is from That’s Racin...

From That’s Racin

Winning fan puts her colors on Jeff Gordon’s car at Talladega
The Associated Press

The No. 24 Chevrolet of four-time NASCAR champion Jeff Gordon, second in the Chase for the Nextel Cup championship, will have a little different look this week at Talladega Superspeedway.

Earlier this year, Gordon, together with Pepsi, asked for fan submissions of a paint-out design for the car that Gordon will drive in Sunday’s UAW-Ford 500.

The winner of the contest was Deborah Chastain of Thomasville, N.Y. Her design was chosen from thousands submitted online. NASCAR artist Sam Bass narrowed the submissions to five finalists and Gordon then chose the winner.

“You can’t imagine how exciting this is for a fan,” Chastain said. “I really enjoyed picking out the colors, designing the paint scheme and adding my version of Jeff’s flames to the car. I never dreamed that I would eventually see Jeff Gordon getting behind the wheel of something I had a hand in designing.”

Chastain and a guest will attend the race and meet Gordon on Sunday morning.

Yup. ‘Dega, COTPOS, collector plate, the Chase and possibly a bunch of foriegners (open wheelers) make it a crap shoot(IMHO)
Shame there’s no Busch race here this weekend. I’d like to have compared speeds between them and the COT on the superspeedway.

Who knows what could happen... it’s a 200 mph crap shoot at that. I just hope nobody gets hurt. At a minimum, I imagine we’ll see some new magic Nascar rules to enhance the experience.

I'm still getting the hang of these threads. Mostly lurk.

What's the etiquette on soliciting advice for driver picks for a fantasy league? I really have not done that here but I'm in a pickle and I NEED to do well this week against my nemesis.

All I know for sure is that if you take any advice from me, your scores will be below 200 regularly.
