Extended Thoughts On NASCAR’s Recent Issues

Tom Pennington/Getty Images for NASCAR)

In the sports recap I touched on Jeff Gordon and Brad Keselowski’s recent penalties by NASCAR, but are these penalties really beneficial or necessary for the sport?

In my opinion, I honestly think that not allowing Brad Keselowski to tweet in his car anymore isn’t THAT big of a deal, but fining him $25K is a bit much. I know, I know, he’s a multi-millionaire, but how can you fine a guy that literally goes on a social network and interacts with fans during a race?

Now, about Jeff’s penalties…he’s my favorite racer, but the penalties subjected to him were a little more in line.

$100K is also pretty steep, but I can see how the application is justified. The docking of 25 points is just a add-on for reinforcement, I think. Don’t get me wrong, he’d do it again if he wanted to. You have to do quite a bit to get Gordon to wreck you.

Anyway, tell me what you think about it all..
