Jeff Gordon / Jimmie Johnson Docked Points

Jeff Gordon and Jimmie Johnson were both docked 100 points and their chew chiefs were both suspended for six races due to the illegal fenders on their cars for last weeks' race at Sonoma.

With all the threats from Nascar for the next car cheating and/or being illegal I thought it would have been a larger penalty.

What I don't get is if it fails the main race inspection why were they allowed to race ? (I know it's sponsors but Nascar's rules remind me of the WWE).

I agree, sorry you cant race if its the final inspection, except these are new cars with new rules. This is sorta a grace period. But hfrom now on???? Sorry, sit this one out gentlemen.

Quote from the Army “If you ain’t cheating, you ain’t trying, if you get caught, you didn’t cheat hard enough”

Cheating has always been in NASCAR, it will never end, I just don’t like how they make themselves look innocent saying stuff like “I didn’t know” or “How did that get in there”. If you get caught deal with it, that’s all. just my .02

I thought that was caught on inspection before first practice/qualifying? They had the problem fixed before final practice, which is why they got to do final practice and race. They parked them only for first practice and qualifying.

The rules were not very clear. They fit the templates. The area in question was between the templates. That area is legal to modify on the old cars. One team was going to test the waters on this gray area.

True, plus what better time to test the waters. When you have a 2 of your teams that far ahead in points.
