Wild and wacky rulings

With the talk about the #33 car being an ant's...uh, leg width outside the limits, I figured we could have a post about what you reckon is the worst/weirdest/silliest/etc penalty you've witnessed in motorsport?

For me, there are two that stand out, both in F1; Montoya's drive-through in the 2002 Malaysian GP when he went side-by-side with Michael Schumacher, who understeered into the Williams yet Juan was judged to be in the wrong despite leaving the Ferrari plenty of room...he still went on to finish second that day.

The second being the 2008 Belgian race which saw a titanic scrap on a damp track at the end between Kimi Raikkonen and Lewis Hamilton. Lewis slithered past at the bus-stop chicane but missed his braking point so he gave the spot back to Kimi before nailling him under brakes for the hairpin. Unfortunately, the officials said Lewis hadn't given Kimi enough time ahead and slapped 20 seconds onto his finishing time which gifted the win to Kimi's teammate, Felipe Massa, after the Finn had crashed on the last lap.

Over to you any head-scratchers?

The Trifecta- We Are Family Edition

Greetings, race fans. By now, you're wondering what the heck does the title for this week's Trifecta have to do with racing. The answer is simple- absolutely nothing. I've been researching my family tree and found some pretty interesting things. So that got my curiosity up and brings us to this -week's totally non -racing question-
Who's the most interesting person in your family tree?

And who knows? We might find out that some of us are distant cousins.

On to the races-

1.) The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race from Las Vegas, Saturday September 25; green flag drops at 9:49pm ET (entry list).

2.) The NASCAR Nationwide Series race from Dover, Saturday September 25; green flag drops at 3:45pm ET (entry list)

3.) The F1 Singapore Grand Prix, Sunday, September 26; green flag drops at 8:00am ET (entry list)

4.) The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race from Dover, Sunday September 26; green flag drops at 1:15pm ET (entry list)

Bowyer Cheated

Post race inspections on Clint Bowyer's winning Chevy, Sunday at NHMS resulted in a 150 point deduct and six week suspensions for his crew chief and car chief.

What a way to kick off the Chase!

It seems that parts of the #33 RCR Chevy did not match the pre-scanned barcodes that NASCAR had on record. Two weeks ago at Richmond NASCAR officials warned RCR that the #33 had pushed the envelope as far as possible, and gave the team a warning.

A belated 2010 Winter Olympics post

A special request, asked by klv, after finding out where I went yesterday.

Loudon Race Chat

Oh Gawd this pre-race is a little I am remembering why I don't typically watch it!

Ok! Stop the presses - Chase begins today in case you didn't know!
And we appear to have another tight race in the Trifecta so if nothing else, that should keep the race interesting.

Whose around to chat!?
