Just joking, lighten up...
Couldn't say DC has the best drivers and keep a straight face.

Saw a van nearly pull in front of a speeding ambulance with lights and sirens blaring - ambulance had to brake. Yeah, France isn't Germany.
Also some local driving quirks - bad manual transmission skills, esp slipping clutches/grinding gears and starting out in too high a gear. Flooring it off the line and also flooring it as one approaches an intersection, as to ensure you make the light, especially if a turn is ahead. Traffic back in lazyland really is in slow motion.
Still beats LLCs and slowpokes though.

If the undertaxed overmonied old turds who ran NASCAR had any balls, Gordon would be suspended for a good year, and the fine would be 10x higher or more.
25K fine for that guy is like a $25 fine for you or I.

I thought he should have been banned for the season at least.
The penalty has to be severe enough that they'll never do it again, that's simply not the case here.

NASCAR! can use all the publicity they can get, good or bad.
This may be a plot to generate more controversy than a simple ban would have done.

Then let them fight, put it on Pay Per View.

Saw this in the local rag pg C 2 Wed Nov 14, 2012 SJMN. ..."Brad Keselowski became a social media darling after hopping on Twitter during a lengthy delay in the Daytona 500."...
