NASCAR correct on Truex/Newman?
NASCAR made a statement Monday, and it wasn't just words. The racing outfit booted Martin Truex Jr. from its coveted Chase for the Sprint Cup because it found that Michael Waltrip Racing manipulated the outcome of Saturday night's regular-season finale at Richmond. In all, Truex, Clint Bowyer and teammate Brian Vickers were docked 50 points each -- although Bowyer's spot in the Chase was not affected -- general manager Ty Norris received an indefinite suspension and Michael Waltrip Racing was fined $300,000. Newman, meanwhile, gets a shot at the title. Did NASCAR make the right call?
