Good times at Auto City Speeedway DSCN0987
NASCAR handed down penalties Tuesday to the No. 88 team that competes in the NASCAR Nationwide Series for a rule violation committed last week at O’Reilly Raceway Park.
The penalties come as a result of the team violating Sections 12-1 (actions detrimental to stock car racing); 12-4-J (any determination by NASCAR officials that the race equipment used in the event does not conform to NASCAR rules); and 20A-12.3T (unapproved left front shock absorber) of the 2010 NASCAR Rule Book. The violation was discovered in post-race inspection on July 24.
Crew chief Tony Eury Sr. has been fined $10,000, while owner Dale Earnhardt Jr. and driver Aric Almirola have been penalized with the loss of 25 championship owner and 25 championship driver points, respectively.

We worry when we read this week in the New York Times that television ratings for NASCAR in the important young men demographic (19-34 years old) declined by 29 percent last year.
Purdue Research Park-based Swift Enterprises Ltd. is working with the Great American Stockcar Series to produce a high-performance green fuel for next week's race at the Iowa Speedway. Co-owner John Rusek says SWIFT/FUEL has a higher energy density than traditional racing fuel, which allows drivers to race longer and make fewer pit stops.

We will also see an example of those who are becoming by-products of this huge, high-dollar sport.
