This includes, but is not limited to, the inside of the car to the trunk area, or the floors, firewalls, crush panels and wheel wells passing air into or out of the car) of the 2008 NASCAR rule book. The violations were found during post-race inspection at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on March 2.
As a result, Edwards and car owner Jack Roush have been penalized 100 championship driver and 100 championship owner points, respectively. In the event the 99 team qualifies for the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup, the team will not receive the 10 bonus points for the UAW-Dodge 400 victory used for determining the Chase seeding order. Crew chief Bob Osborne has been fined $100,000, suspended from the next six NASCAR Sprint Cup Series events, suspended from NASCAR until April 30 and placed on probation until Dec. 31.
That is what they call the hammer.

So he gets to keep his win???? They will take away his 10 points for the chase, but not the actual win??

I think they should take the win away...from anyone found illegal after these sort of things...it doesn't make sense. I mean if they took Vanessa William's crown away.....

I think so too. Although I admit I want him to have his win taken away cause I want to see Hendricks Motorsports win. (Dale Jr. came in 2nd.)

I hate all the inconsistency with the rules in NASCAR....it's something different every week it seems. Next week they may come out and take someone's win away for something illegal post race...but you never know....this crew chief gets fined $50,000....this one gets $100,000....this one only gets $25,000...it's nuts!!!

I agree, but it seems there are just too many intangibles with NASCAR.
