Default Re: NASCAR to reprimand Biffle's girlfriend

moreso than any other sport or even entertainment event (except maybe the circus), nascar, and racing in general, is a family ordeal. its one of the things that gives nascar such great and growing appeal. families put on the show, and families pay to see the show. im willing to bet there isnt a driver in nascar who doesnt have family menbers as an employee of their team. before these drivers made it big, they didnt have teams, just family and friends who contributed and got them started and gave them the support. i think its pretty cool to see joe nemechecks (sponsored by the army) mom in the pits in her fatigues dressed like a drill sgt. rustys mom runs his fanclub, ryans dad drives his motor coach. kahnes brother works in the pits. wives such as d. harvick, and b. gordon become team owners. as long as kids arent running around pit road, getting in peoples way or getting hurt, im all for family members being there.
