    NASCAR fines, strips points from four Toyota teams for using unapproved parts

    Four Toyota teams have been fined and stripped of points after NASCAR officials confiscated unapproved parts before last weekend's Samsung Mobile 500 at Texas Motor Speedway. The penalties went against the teams featuring drivers Max Papis, Marcos Ambrose, David Reutimann and Martin Truex Jr.

    The Camrys of Papis and Ambrose were found to have unapproved lower radiator pans during postqualifying inspection. Series director John Darby considered the pans to be “unapproved ballast weight-mounting.”

    UNFAIR!

    Toyota doesn't want the engines to overheat when the accelerator gets stuck.

    I have a number of friends that love NASCAR, none are rednecks and one is black.

    Some of you are living in the past.

    I am about as far from a redneck as you can be, and I will watch nascar from time to time. I still don;t think this is front page news on gminsidenews.com. I just cringe at the thought of NASCAR actually even remotely being thought of as "stock car" racing, which if it were actual "stock" cars, I would definitely watch every race.

    It can be front page news in that Toyotay (and GM and Ford And Chrysler) not only do a lot of promotions/advertising during the events, but while the cars share minimal parts with production cars, the companies do put a LOT of money toward engineering of the cars in the race.

    I'm guessing they were hoping for a Toyota Bash-a-thon or something.

    I love it "they need to keep a level playing field" so it isn't a race then?

    I guess the point these days is to see who has the best driver and crew with less emphasis on the car.

    This Aussie is no redneck and loves NASCAR racing. It shouldn't be front page news as the we have the NASCAR 2010 discussion thread.

    Front page news is Dale Jr driving the #3 in the July Daytona Nationwide race. Announcement next Thursday. Seems to be a JR Motorsports car, but the announcement will be at JRM, with Childress, Dale Jr, sister Kelly &...wait for it... wait for it... Theresa is supposed to be there as well.
    Talk is cheap, sometimes it is on sale.
