Default Knaus suspended three more races, fined $25K

Does anyone else think this is a bit excessive, or is it just me?

only if rickey williams getting suspended for a year for his 4th failed drug test is excessive. i think if jj had really struggled at the 500 and it looked like losing knaus would hurt his chances of making it into the top 10 the suspension may have been lighter. after the way he preformed nascar probably figured losing him for 3 more races will probably not have hurt the team anyways. i dont know, nascar may have suspended him the same if jj blew up and finished 43rd but they do take care of the teams, especially the good ones.

knaus was just on sportscenter and says hes cool with it as long as nascar is consistant. and he understands his past infractions led to the severity of this suspension as well it should.

which begs the question, if you have the most $$$, best equipment, and what proved to be a race winning car, why cheat in the 1st place?

I think it may be a bit much, but it's not the first time he got caught. Cheating used to be a big part of NASCAR but they are really cracking down on the people that stretch the rules. It has been said that if you're not cheating then you're not trying to win. I imagine that is especially the case at restrictor plate races.

He'll be back soon enough, and I don't know how much him not being there actually hurts the team after Daytona.

nice new sig. bb2w. the #17 car definitely has the best color scheme!

i dont think knaus' absence will be felt. seeing how harvick and jj both won the week their crewchiefs were suspended im thinking l. carter shouldve been suspended to get rusty one final victory last year.

I think Knaus deserves this.If you cheat and get caught,you pay the consequences.

Thanks, that is actually one of the reasons why I started rooting for him... plus most of the power tools I use at work are Dewalt. Now, after a few years of watching him I just like him no matter what car he's in. I like the Carharrt car too, but I don't really care for the USG, Trex, or the RL Carriers car. I guess anything is better than the Waste Management car he somertimes drove in the past.

I actually always rooted for Rusty in the past, but as the end of his career was in sight I had to pick a younger driver.

NASCAR is sending a message...

But I will say this. Daytona is one thing, the next 3 races will be entirely different. Daytona they had time, Knaus was around for most of Speed Weeks, and they pretty much had the car set to go.

They hit 3 cookie cutters in the next 3 weeks, and these are the kind of tracks that give teams fits. I think Knaus being gone will hurt the 48 team.

bb2w, ive heard thats the easiest way to get into nascar. immediately pick out 1 car or driver and focus on them. it worked for me and i was instantly hooked. first race that i watched 3 cars stood out to me. the all black #3. some rookie driver in a super bright rainbow looking car (. and the super cool other black car- mgd (which happened to be my favorite beer at the time and had the steelers colors) the choise was easy. to think how close i was to becomming an earnhardt or gordon fan *shivers*

and good point suit. jjs daytona car was pretty much set for several months. the team could pretty much fly on auto pilot. i think past success will help carry the team through california. as for the other 2 tracks, i just think if the team can lose their lead engine builder and not miss a beat, a 4 race suspension wont hurt too bad either. its kind of like sending t. stewart to the back of the field twice at daytona. sure it was a penalty but look how many times he has intentionally dropped to the back of the field at a restricor plate track, just to lay low, watch, and make a late race charge. kenseth said he shouldve atleast been penalized a lap but even that wouldnt have hurt stewart too much. he wouldve gotten the lucky dog and still finished 5th.

They should've dropped points too. NASCAR is so inconsistent with their penalties.

No need...I think by week 4 we'll see just how good of a crew chief Knaus is and how much they miss him.
