All in Favor.....

So maybe NASCAR is trying to send a message where the CoT is concerned, but apparently they are still lacking the fair play in other areas. Take for example the recent parking of Ted Musgrave. He pulled a similar stunt as Kurt Busch did by ramming into the side of another race car [truck], but not on pit road. He has been suspended from competition until July 3, penalized 50 championship driver points, fined $10,000 and placed on probation until Dec. 31. He is missing one race. Busch got a wrist slap in comparison.
The fans, the media and us blogater's were for the most part pleased with NASCAR's recent consistency with the CoT, but balance still eludes and the message sent out was more of a power stroke than anything.

Too bad that didn't happen to Busch.

I wonder if two factors weighed into this...number 1 sincere or not Busch was apologetic afterwards and went to the crew member and apologised as well... 2 and has to be figured in Busch has a prominent sponsor and car owner and Musgrave doesn't.. I'm not sure if those really applied to each case ..just some foos for thought
