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.

NASCAR does need the publicity.

In Zurich now, been a few years - something here I forgot, which would make the heads of most middle of the road Americans explode - trams share the roads with cars, as in the same lanes, and those lanes also intersect with car lanes. I can't imagine that working well in NA, hell in Seattle, the idiots crash into the light rail all the time, and those trains have their own dedicated areas. Another strike against working public transit in the US - (what passes for) motorists will mess it up.
Good city to park the car and just walk or use those trams, which is what I am doing. The big boat will get to take a break.
