  1. The money is nothing. They should take away points, that’s were it hurts. Or penalize positions. On the flip side of that ten grand for a loose lug nut but if you fail inspection you only start in the back. A lug nut is a mistake, failing inspection multiple times means you are trying to get away with something my opinion is that nascar should revise the penalty book
