Just heard about a press conference that NASCAR just called for tonight at 8:15. Rumor is it's about MWR and their part in deciding the Chase.

I hope that MWR gets Truex AND Bowyer kicked out of the chase.

NASCAR PR wrote:
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (Sept. 9, 2013) – NASCAR has issued penalties to Michael Waltrip Racing following the sanctioning body’s review of Saturday’s race at Richmond International Raceway.

MWR was found to have violated Section 12-4 (Actions detrimental to stock car racing). As a result, MWR’s three teams in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (No. 15, 55, 56) have been penalized with the loss of 50 championship driver and 50 championship owner points, respectively.

These point penalties are assessed following the season’s 26th regular season race and not after the seeding for the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup. Therefore, the point total for the No. 56 car driven by Martin Truex Jr. is reduced to 691, putting him in 17th position and eliminating him from the second Wild Card berth for the Chase field. Ryan Newman, driver of the No. 39 car, now moves up into the Chase as the second Wild Card participant.

NASCAR has also fined the MWR organization $300,000 and indefinitely suspended Ty Norris, MWR Executive Vice President/General Manager and spotter for the No. 55 car, for violating Section 12-4. The three crew chiefs – Brian Pattie (No. 15), Scott Miller (No. 55) and Chad Johnston (No. 56) – have all been placed on NASCAR probation until Dec. 31.

"Based upon our review of Saturday night’s race at Richmond, it is our determination that the MWR organization attempted to manipulate the outcome of the race," said Robin Pemberton, NASCAR vice president of competition. "As the sport’s sanctioning body, it is our responsibility to ensure there is a fair and level playing field for all of our competitors and this action today reflects our commitment to that."

Im looking through..and if I have this right...We could be looking at 25 Prototypes at Daytona (massive expansion, 16 from DP atleast, atleast 1 Delta Wing, atleast 5 LMP2's from America, (maybe Muscle Milk and Dyson), 3 LMP2 teams from Europe interested. I think we could look at 11-12 LMPC's with the amount of new cars planned for entering from teh current teams and 8 Star and Starworks. Combine in GTE I'd expect 10-12 cars. and GTD+GTC+GX, there are updwards of another 20 cars atleast. Right now theres about 69 cars that are almost guranteed atleast for Daytona and that doesnt even start counting teams that might do a one off.

F*** REDEVELOPERS. Killing race tracks 1 day at a time. Really hope they can build a replacement for Irwindale if it does get redeveloped.
