NASCAR Is Too Easy on Carl Edwards
NASCAR penalized Carl Edwards 60 Championship Points and placed him on probation until December 31, 2010 for knocking Brad Keselowski into the wall and causing 9 other drivers to wreck on the last lap at Gateway International Raceway Saturday Night.
Edwards was also fined $25,000.
After Edwards took the checkered flag he admitted that he intentionally dumped Keselowski in order to collect the win.
Probation and a 60 point penalty did not go nearly far enough. NASCAR should have parked Carl Edwards for a minimum of one week. And that includes Sprint Cup, Nationwide and Truck Series racing.
This was the second serious crash Edwards has intentionally caused this year. Does someone have to be seriously injured or killed before NASCAR parks Carl Edwards?
Edwards needs to sit at home for a while.
NASCAR added insult to injury by placing Brad Keselowski on probation alongside Edwards. But Keselowski was not penalized with points or fines.
NASCAR, why would you put a driver on probation for being wrecked on purpose?
When Edwards turned Brad Keselowski sideways Saturday night and Kieslowskiâ€™s car was nailed at high speed one man said â€œDonâ€™t kill my boy!â€
That man has 87 NASCAR racing starts. He is also Brad Kieslowskiâ€™s father, Bob.
Bob Keselowski has threatened to dust off his firesuit and take care of Edwards himself. I donâ€™t think he will have to. Someone will put Carl Edwards in his place soon enough
Who do you think will take care of Carl Edwards first?
