NASCAR issues penalties for Charlotte post-race: NASCAR has assessed behavioral penalties to drivers #2-Brad Keselowski and #14-Tony Stewart for their involvement in post-race incidents on Oct. 11 at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Keselowski has been fined $50,000 and placed on NASCAR probation for the next four NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championship events through Nov. 12 for violating:
" Section 12-1: Actions detrimental to stock car racing
" Section 12-4.9: Behavioral penalty -- involved in post-race incidents
Stewart has been fined $25,000 and placed on NASCAR probation for the next four NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championship events through Nov. 12 for violating:
" Section 12-1: Actions detrimental to stock car racing
" Section 12-4.9: Behavioral penalty -- involved in a post-race incident
"These penalties are about maintaining a safe environment following the race," said Robin Pemberton, NASCAR senior vice president, competition and racing development. "We knew that the new Chase format was likely going to raise the intensity level and we want our drivers to continue to be themselves. However, the safety of our drivers, crew members, officials, and workers is paramount and we will react when that safety could be compromised."(NASCAR)(10-14-2014)

What was Stewart thinking? After what he just went through and about to go through with the civil process. That was a stupid move on his part and it only will keep his body shop busy.

Yeah, I think Stewart  is loosing it and he  needs to retire from NASCAR and all racing before he kills someone.

 

Too soon?  :runaway:

Notice the media has basically ignored his action. They are afraid to address it. TS has not even commented on his brillant reaction.Just think of the implications if a NASCAR official or crew member inadvertently walked in front of BK's car and TS mows him down! You could tell by the video he floored the car in reverse. I agree with QuickSilver, time for TS to retire. He is starting to define his legacy as a driver out of control vs a champion.

No, I don't believe TS should retire, and I am not a TS fan.  However, he is passionate about racing, and impetous and impulsive.  What was he thinking.............he wasn't.  Somebody hit him and he immediately struck back, without thinking.  I like that in a man.

Not thinking works if you are your own man but 300 employees and sponsors depend on him to act like a professional. Making the kind of stupid decisions he has been making lately is putting his whole operation at serious risk. Keep the passion for racing on the track. Same deal for BK. Don't put others at risk for your own road rage and use a 3500lb car as a weapon. Take care of business like Kenseth did. That I like and respect in a driver.

I think they were all trying to play games instead of just getting out there and running laps. It backfired on most of them.

What a statement made by BK. Penske has given Ford the best shot to win this thing. Pullin for the #22 to take it.

I did not care for this new chase format when it was announced but must admit it has made it more stressful and interesting.  Who would believe that 3 Hendrick cars would be eliminated this early.

 

Still, Kenseth and Newman could win the championship without ever having won a race all year.

Yeah, I wasn't sure about the new chase format myself but holy sh!t, that was one exciting race and the last 9 laps after that caution flag were absolutely nail biting. I was cheering for Dale Jr. before he wrecked then Jimmy Johnson when he was fighting for the lead and then I was cheering for Keselowski when he finally pushed out front.  Heck, I'm not even sure who I want to win it all but it sure is super exciting.

 

I think I really like this new format.

The format has turned out better than I thought too. Who would have thought that JJ and Jr are out. That last few laps were really fun to watch. I watched the last 50 laps at a bar in a golf club. Not kidding but there was at least 20 of us standing and and watching the final laps vs the Dallas/giant game which was on the TV next to us. I think that says something. I don 't think any of us can fully understand the skill and kahonas it takes to go 4 and 5 wide into a turn at 198 mph. Good stuff.

The new format failed in one way for NASCAR though.  Their biggest hope was this this would keep Dale Jr. in the race longer and maybe even get him a championship so they could maintain the fan attendance and view ratings.  I'm just glad that Ford has wormed its way into the Chevy-love so well this year; I sure hope this momentum carries through 2015.  It would be great to see a Ford finally win again at the Brickyard.

I agree the new format is very exciting.  Not as fair for the drivers but great for the fans.

 

Interesting to see what Penske has planned for 2015 and if Ford will share anything with Roush.  Roush can't do anything now and let Carl know since he is jumping ship.

I doubt the drivers have any idea what the teams do to make the cars faster. They don't need to know - and are probably better off not knowing. All they need to know is their times.

 

Edit - some folks at Penske know what they've had all season that's given  them the edge. But I bet its a small number.
