NASCAR Penalties Need To Fit The Crime

NASCAR Penalties Need To Fit The Crime

_”There is no truth. There is only perception.”_ _Gustave Flaubert_ The beauty of sports is that they’re a form of entertainment.

That’s why for every diehard, no matter what you’re covering there’s about ten other people who know just enough to get by. Life has a funny habit of getting in the way of these hobbies: kids, work, bills, or even a beautiful Spring Day, which more than half the country experienced on Thursday that clearly supersedes some 30-minute research into the NASCAR Rule Book.

Sure, there was his fairly controversial finish at the Whelen All-American UNOH Battle at the Beach, during which he turned C.E. Falk on the final lap to win the first race of the series.

This popular, 0.75-mile oval will be inheriting another load of racing drama this weekend, but for once, it's not "Boys, Have At It." Instead, the main focus on everyone’s minds will be "Boys, What's The Call Now?" revolving closely around the onslaught of penalties NASCAR has dumped onto some of the biggest names in the sport.
