I don't bat for the other team. So no I didn't sleep with him. But thank you gor asking.

And I heard it on the PRN broadcast. Maybe Mark Garrow slept with Balash.

6 points is what Sadler got in Iowa a couple of months ago for the same issue

6 pts for a post race infraction seems like a joke.
48 pts for 1st & 42 pts for 2nd & the penalty is only 6 pts?

Wait, did I just say that outloud?


Yep, you said that out loud :lol:

And NASCAR answered by docking him 6 points which gives the lead to Sadler... :P

Well Sadler being a company man is prolly good with it.

I think maybe it should have been more seeing as how this is not RCR's first time to be called on the hauler. But I guess they call it NASCAR instead of DOCCAR....I do like the sound of that though....

But what happen to Austin's car actually hurt him instead of helped him. Same thing happened to Carl Edwards back at Dover in the 2007 fall cup race. He failed post race inspection. But what happened to his car actually was a disadvantage to him. But in both cars they failed so NASCAR had to give them penalties. But small ones. If Kyle Busch had gone through inspection after Kentucky he would have failed post race inspection because he broke a shock and that affects the car. These cars don't stay the same throughout the race. You got to understand that these parts and pieces bend and move around so much that sometimes things happen.

If they had blatantly cheated there would have been a bigger points penalty. But they didn't so there wasn't.

I keep saying it eveywhere, but it seems to me Elliot may have lost his chance at winning a title a month or so back when Austin kept putting in consistent runs and held close in points. Probably unexpected but since it happened, they're going all in with the 3 car the rest of the year, Sadler will be relegated to wing man.

Huge Sr. fan from the day but count me as a 'skeptical' Austin Dillon observer. I still find it hard that the guy that made the 3 famous is probably the the most famous example of someone who had to work his butt off and fight his way into the sport, rookie Cup year not until age 28, and then his number is brought out of retirement by a kid who hasn't had to work for any opportunity he's gotten.

At first I kinda liked Austin but now he seems like he's becoming a cocky brat. And really, get rid of the cowboy hat little dude. Petty's been there, done that. Find something that's your own. Oh yeah, he doesn't know what that means (the 3 car)...

Oh, and stop the face planting after wins :roll:
