Nascar Penalizes Kyle Busch and the 18 Team

No, this isn’t for the speeding incident that Kyle Busch had a few weeks ago, Nascar has penalized crew chief Dave Rogers $25,000, Kyle Busch 6 driver points and Joe Gibbs six owner points because of rule infractions discovered in a post race inspection this past Sunday.

The No. 18 car was found to be in violation of Sections 12-1 (actions detrimental to stock car racing); 12-4-J (any determination by NASCAR officials that race equipment used in the event does not conform to NASCAR rules); and 20-12.8.1B (body height requirements — car failed to meet the minimum front car heights) of the 2011 NASCAR rule book.

Anybody know why they chose six championship points?

    I think this is a weak penalty and i do not even care for Kyle Busch.

    Kyle Busch is a very talented driver, don’t get me wrong, but the way he throws a fit about some stuff is just childish. I understand getting mad about something, but the scene he creates sometimes is uncalled for. Being penalized here is nothing compared to the other stuff Joe Gribbs needs to worry about.
