Did Casey Mears and Dale Earnhardt Jr. deserve stiffer penalties for their run-in Saturday night in Phoenix?
Joe Menzer: Nah. I didn’t see this as that big of a deal. Probably the only reason it’s being discussed so much is because one of the players involved is Dale Jr. David Caraviello: Of course not. This stuff is childish to be sure, but far from worthy of NASCAR “lowering the boom,” like some said they would. I believe this is exactly what Edwards and Kyle Busch received for a similar incident last year at Bristol — probation. And we all know what probation means in NASCAR. Virtually nothing.
