NickHolt Posted April 21, 2005 Report Share Posted April 21, 2005 Anybody else amazed that NASCAR DQ'd Sauter after the TMS Busch race for an oversized carb? I don't recall anyone competing in NASCAR's top series (in the so-called Modern Era, anyway) being totally DQ'd before. Looks like NASCAR's setting a new precedent here. According to NASCAR's Jim Hunter, the reason he was DQ'd - "as if he never showed up for the race" - was because the illegal carburetor fell into the "blatant" category. OK, fair enough, but what exactly does "blatant" mean? What parts are we talking about? Carbs only? How about fuel cells? Engine size? Traction control? Another thing that might cause problems down the road is that Hunter said he didn't know if NASCAR would ever take a victory away under the same situation that Sauter found himself. Sounds kinda like a double standard. If you cheat well enough to win, you get to keep your the victory. If you cheat and finish second, you're DQ'd. Something doesn't sound quite right with that.
