Top 10 Unsuccessful Arguments Used by the No. 48 Team in Their Appeal Hearing

10. “To nail us on a C-post, you actually need an official who can see the post.”

9. “If you think the C-posts were bad, you should have checked the A-posts.”

8. “Junior Johnson took a look and said they were legit.”

7. “We’re supposed to take a rulebook written in pencil seriously?”

6. Had Danica Patrick present their argument (video of which can only be seen on GoDaddy.com).

5. “If ‘We don’t like the way it looks’ is a valid reason to keep someone off the track, how come you let Brad Keselowski race every week?”

4. Simply slid a bag of Doritos to each appeal board member with a handwritten note … “U didn’t see nuthin’!”

3. “Have any of you seen Jimmie drive on a plate track? Do you really think anything we do to the car could be that big an advantage?”

2. “When we asked the No. 18 team at Indy last year, they said a C-post was no sweat, NASCAR will just make you fix it!”

1. “We had to make up for the aerodynamic drag of Jimmie’s beard somehow!”
