I really like Tony Stewart and love the way he takes care of the racing in Ohio and on the NASCAR track. He drives a race car to win not to wreck some one. However I think that NASCAR has to do more when they find something that is not right. I suppose this time it was probably a good decision on NASCAR part. But in other circumstances they let people keep the win and then come back and dock points and take money. The money seems to big what NASCAR really wants. I think that they should really be a lot tougher on finishes when they find something wrong.

NASCAR has to be careful of what they do. There are some drivers they would hate to take a win away from if they started that.

Allmendinger better watch his back, a lot of evidence might mysteriously start popping up all over the place.

Tony was penalized because the car failed to pass the post qualifying inspection, not the post race inspection. He qualified 2nd and because of the infraction had to start at the back of the field. He was also docked 6 points and his crew chief fined $25,000.00 which sounds like enough for a loose air hose to me. The problem was corrected prior to the race and the car was perfectly legal during the race so there would be no reason to consider taking the win away from him.

Nascar should take the "win" away from him and let him beg for an appeal. How dare he cheat. ;p
