    track bar can help a too tight or too lose condition and yeah it can help with a bad setup, both with adjustments in the pits and being able to fine tune it out on the track.

    If you raise the trackbar on the right-hand side, you move the rear wheels to the right. This makes the car looser when accelerating and tighter when braking. Conversely, moving the trackbar down on the right-hand side pushes the wheels to the left, tightening the car under acceleration and loosening the car during braking. Moving the rear axle left/right is essentially adding stagger (“rear steer”) to the car because the distance between the front and rear wheels isn’t the same on both sides of the car due to the offset.

    Reduced penalty for Earnhardt
    Mon., March 3, 1986 – NASCAR officials reduced a penalty and fine levied against driver Dale Earnhardt for his actions in the final laps of the Feb. 23 Miller High Life 400 at Richmond Fairgrounds Raceway. The Richard Childress Racing driver had initially been placed on probation for one year under a $10,000 bond and fined $5,000 for contact with Darrell Waltrip. Following a meeting of the NASCAR appeals committee held at Charlotte Douglas Airport, Earnhardt’s penalty was reduced to a $3,000 fine.

    At the time, Earnhardt’s $5,000 fine and $10,000 bond (required to pay before he could resume competition) was the harshest penalty levied against a driver since Curtis Turner and Tim Flock were banned from the sport in 1961.

    Waltrip passed Earnhardt with three laps remaining but contact from Earnhardt sent both cars into the guardrail in Turn 3 before the lap was completed.

    Kyle Petty slipped through the wreckage to score the win, his first in NASCAR’s premier series.

    I would have thought a major house like Mecum would routinely insist on authenticity documentation.

    I don't guess I ever thought about this, or paid that close attention:

    Jeff responded to a question about why the pit boxes were still on pit road.

    The teams leave the pit boxes every week. Too big for the haulers. A company comes and loads them into trucks and takes them to the next race.

    it’s a company that does logistics like this. They park their haulers at the track and then bring them to pit road after the race. Dudes on ATVs zip up and down pit road with the pit boxes attached to the back and load them into the trucks.

    'We overachieved in Fontana' - Harvick

    “Everybody at Stewart-Haas Racing will get us what we need, and right now we’re just off a little bit from the 18 (winner Kyle Busch) and the Penske cars. We know that and we got solid top-five finishes out of stuff that we didn’t think was very good, so we’ll go work hard.”
    “When you come to this west coast swing, you have what you have, and we left here with four top-10’s and three top-fives over the first five races, said Harvick. “I’m proud of everybody for that. It isn’t always going to be good. You have to try to figure out how to do things better when they aren’t going very good, and our guys have done that.”

    I think HMS has gotten a little to comfortable at the shop and are in a bit of a rut when it comes to production of new cars and are just doing the same thing over and over expecting different results.
    One car I think is putting in the work and the reason is they have a new driver of quality and that is #1 Kurt Bush. His input and the fact they can trust what he says could be the reason he is the #1 Chevy on the track. Even RCR is as good as HMS right now. I also think RFR is getting better with R Newman's input.

    SHR is not far off with their setups, I think their drivers need to make some adjustments in their expectation. The #14 may do better when they move Cole up.

    Tony has good opinions and Tony has opinions with no critical thought. This one is the latter. Such a dumb statement. Coming from the man who employed Danica Patrick.
