Newman's race winning modified confiscated by NASCAR: UPDATE: The car Sprint Cup Series driver Ryan Newman drove to victory in Saturday's NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour F.W. Webb 100 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway was confiscated by NASCAR during post-race inspection. NASCAR spokesman Jason Christley said the car was confiscated to allow NASCAR to make further evaluations concerning restrictor plate and airflow issues with the motor on the car. Newman, who won the pole in qualifying for the event on Thursday, beat second place finisher Todd Szegedy to the checkered flag by 1.901 seconds on Saturday. "The action is not necessarily an indication of any impending penalty," Christley said. The car will be taken by NASCAR to their Research and Development Center in Concord, N.C. for further inspection.(Hartford Courant)(7-17-2011)

I really never understood why the drivers are penalized on things like this. Should they be penalized on major issues that might be obvious? Yep, but how is a driver really supposed to "see" this kind of offense. Jeesh!

What is so sad about this is, Ryan doesn't need this kind of help to win. Just give him a good legal car and he'll drive it to the front. Everyone knows he wasn't responsible for this, Come on, what are you thinking???? Nascar will find it...
