anybody else think this idea stinks from the top down....allowing a car/team sponsor to be able to sponsor an individual race just does not seem to go toward any integrity at all ...or maybe just me

Just seems like Nascar geasing the wheels sort of thing....Lowes team with Kobalt and Chad Knaus should be suspended with this race part of it....Kobalt Tools 400.I understand they are appealing but let me get this straight....Kobalt Tools 400  $$$$$......Kobalt sponsored Kendrick team $$$$$$.....ok team stays intact at a track THEY do well at...HMMMMM ? would not want to piss off a major sponsor...and dont tell me Nascar does not let the all mighty dollar skew their judgement just a bit

Kind of like baseball when a guy appeals a suspension when they have the Yankees or Phillies coming up and then when to team travels to Kansas City they decide to not appeal....What is taking Nascar so long to decide about a hearing ?  maybe they wanted to wait until AFTER the Kobalt 400 maybe ?

I don't think you can skew anyones opinion here.  Nascar is as crooked as it comes and they certainly can sway a race they way they want.

What do you know debris on the track.  Funny how that always seems to happen when someone popular is exactly the first car one lap down.

While I agree with MLB and Mark. Lowes very smart in sponsoring races where JJ runs very well

Dude I think you are way off here. The fact that a team sponsor sponsors a particular race has nothing to do with who wins it. Jimmie is a threat to win at every track he goes to. Doesn't hurt that Lowes/Kobalt sponsors the ones he's really good at.

Do you have any other examples or is Jimmie/Kobalt your sole reasoning for your conspiracy theory.
