I heard on the radio today that Nascar just might take this car completly apart. I don't know if it was a valid source, I was only half paying attention since I didn't even know who Ryan Newman was.

My question is why isnt Rusty doing as well? Isnt he Team Penske South? But being from the heart of Nascar country I remember when Gordon won 13 races one year he was accused of cheating. When you put together a consistant program in any style of racing it has always been human nature for the fingers to start pointing

Hey Trout -- Do I sense a little pent up professional frustration toward the Warrant Clause and Amend. IV ?!?!?

Thumbs up

SURPRISE Ryan Newman gets another pole for this weekend. I hope that beating everyone will put the cheating rumors to rest.

GO 12

One area not mentioned was a practice used years ago.
The fill can had more volume than allowed . so for example. car takes on 2 cans supposed to be (guess)
20 gal instead he puts in 25 gal. every bit counts. just
a theory don't shoot the messenger

Default Some notes from the inside

[list=1][*]Roger Penske will never, EVER condone cheating. Rule-flexing? Sure. Cheating? NO WAY.[*]Ryan's car(s) have already been impounded and inspected (in full public view) several times this season. Results - clean as a whistle every time.[*]Several other drivers pitted on the same lap and therefore made the same mileage.[*]When fuel is dispensed into the refueling cans, it is weighed on a very accurate set of scales to make sure each can gets exactly the same mass of fuel.[*]Ryan Newman has a degree in Mechanical Engineering from Purdue which helps him understand what is going on with the car from a very deep technical point of view.[*]Matt Borland (Ryan's Crew Chief) also has an Engineering degree. Same benefits as #5.[*]All the competitors *****ed about Jeff Gordon a few years ago, too. He was legal.[*]Rusty is indeed Ryan's team mate and they share all information, but each crew is free to make their own decisions.[*]There's a lot to be said for "momentum". When you're on a roll, you feel confident, you're more relaxed, smoother, and you think better.[*]If you're being beat, and you put all your energy into hating your opponent, your car/team doesn't get any better for it. If you put your energy into making your car/team better, pretty soon you're the one everyone hates. (Works for sanctioning bodies, too... )[*]Roger Penske will never, EVER condone cheating.[/list=1]

Purdue?! What do you know about engineering degrees from Purdue? How ya doin' Chuck? Glad to see you post. Tell the Admiral I said hello and an early CONGRATS to you both!
