Kyle Busch Fails Post Race in Busch Race September 30, 2007

Posted by claireblang in Breaking News, Drivers, In The Garage.

It was the wildest thing. Late Saturday night, around 9:00 p.m. Central Time NASCAR began making and taking phones calls here in Kansas on word that Kyle Busch’s race-winning car in the Yellow 300 Busch series race had failed post-race inspection.

Officials had seized the intake manifold from the car and were expected to announce penalties, if any, early this coming week. It was late-breaking and interesting word from NASCAR long after most journalists had left the track. Most had filed their stories on the race and had left the track. NASCAR decided rather than simply take the car and check it out the infraction was serious enough that they would fail the car because of an intake manifold issue.

Busch fought back from a pit-road speeding penalty early in the race and then rallied to win Saturday’s Yellow 300 at Kansas Speedway, holding off Matt Kenseth in a thriller of a side-by-side finish.

Since NASCAR is all about escalating penalties, they should think about taking the win away from the team. I think that going from first to last will be more incentive than fines.

Question here why if this was a post race insp. why they not put the car on the longest line then. It gets me here lately that nascar find something wrong with the cars after they win a race. Flora
