NASCAR Wants a Level Playing Field

If you know me or know my writing I am about as independent a writer as they come. I don’t have an agenda. What pains me is that in social media on many occasions people talk about NASCAR being fixed.  I can tell you from experience that is not true.

This past week Denny Hamlin won. He burned the tires down; wrecking his car big time. NASCAR is, understandably so, thinking that he did it to hide something. He may be, he may not be, but that is what NASCAR is all about. They want, above all else the playing field to be even.

In my independent status NASCAR or the Tracks have given me access to the inspection process. I can tell you never, and most people say never say never, but I can tell you never has anyone kept me from watching and asking questions during that process.

I can tell you first hand that every car no matter a Champion, future Champion or also ran; they all go through the same process. There are no favorites. Each and every one is judged the same. NASCAR has been all about making the players play by the rules.

That doesn’t mean that the players (NASCAR Teams) will find ways to bend or extend the rules but I can guarantee that NASCAR will fix that if they find it.
