That's my point/question. nascar has painted themselves into a box which is only going to cause them more grief at a later date. Is that not obvious?
Agreed. This penalty is an absolute farce. 3 grams is about the weight of 3 drops of water. I know everything in auto racing is measured down to the thousandth of a second, the thousandth of an inch, but there's just no way an error that size could possibly have impacted the outcome of the race.

I hope this gets mitigated on appeal, and that someone sane takes over discipline at NASCAR HQ.
