Top Ten Unsuccessful Arguments Used By The No. 48 Team In Their Appeal Hearing

“Somebody at the shop painted it wrong. That was supposed to be Junior’s Daytona 500 ride!”

*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 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!”
