Lets take Carl Edwards, for example, if he was to receive a 15 point penalty for a post race inspection violation...it would knock him from 1st to 6th in points. That would be a huge hit at this point in the season with things being as close as they are, but it could be overcome. Whereas a 25 point hit would knock him down to 8th almost 9th.
Anybody else have a feeling on the subject besides the drivers and the talking heads as I am sure we will hear more as time goes on.
