I have a few drivers I like and Kyle is one of them. I know you are not allowed to pass the pace car but I don't know if there is a one on bumping the car. :wink :
I think he maybe held out one race and pay a bunch of $$$.

I doubt it will be anywhere near that severe. If so some nascar officials should lose their jobs.

It shouldn't be a big deal but who knows anymore. A few drivers used to often nudge the pace car, Tony Stewart being one of them.

No penalty for Busch. No Nascar officials fired, at least publicly.

The big deal today was the long anticipated announcement that Keselowski will become a minority owner at Roush Fenway and has a long term contract to drive the #6.

Pace car nudge...that's just the Shrub being the Shrub.

Keselowski buying into team ownership is a good thing because like the other teams with older owners...they need an exit strategy too. So why not open it up to your younger, near-to-driving-retiremen t-age guys. Brad has alot of wisdom at this point in his career. I think he'll be a good owner/team builder.

For Keselowski what's the difference between a truck series team that could win occasionally but not make money vs. a cup team that's not currently doing either one?
