I'm okay with the fines as for the most part, they appear to be applied pretty evenly through the years. Including a couple of times to the 48 team. No doubt they're being very protective towards the new car. From what I've seen so far, it appears that it's going to be very successful, however, I'm holding off on judgement at the plate races - Daytona was boring to watch. But that was their first race (points) and drivers were being very cautious.

question is, what was the problem? It's kind of ironic that this team has been the hottest on the media as of late, now they're getting penalties for something that they won't release to the media. seems fishy to me.

Basicley what they did was slot the mounts or rear axle brackets just a tad bit, so they can slew the axle over, like they were allowed in '12. Move the axle forward on the pass side & back on the drivers side on the trailing arms, gives more bite in & out of the corners. Remember last yr when the cars were crab walking on the straights?

Matt the bratt, has the pole for Kansas. But I think Carl Edwards has the cat to beat. The Fords are looking real strong so it should be a good race.

I'm thinking Matt Kenseth is real happy with his decision to join JGR, as well as Kasey Kahne at Hendrick.
Yeah, & their both doing great too.

I'm sure TRD is going to pay the fine thru JGR. Even thou, that doesn't help Matt or Jason Ratcliff the crew chief or the Coach. How 'bout Johnny Sauter, & his crew chief getting caught w/ the foam missing from the fuel cell, to gain what 2 ounces. As you know the bonehead move the Hornaday did.
