Failed engine inspection.  Drops from 8th to 14th in standings.  Good thing the win still stands in the eyes of the bookmakers

Kenseth's win @ kansas doesn't count toward the wildcard in the chase also!

This penalty is huge. Only one similar I can think of is the horseshit penalty Carl Long encountered during the Showdown a couple years back. 

Somebody is going to lose their job over this because there is no way they intentionally unbalanced the engine. What would be the advantage of a single light rod?

looks like a 6 week hammer is the new norm. this thou, isn't a big deal. not sure what NASCAR is thinking but don't agree with it

Toyota took responsibility.  One connecting rod was 2 grams too light.

I just realized a part pf the penalty was the 20 car can not earn points for 6 races? wtf! I must be missing something here, and this light rod was more of an advantage than one would think, because nascar is acting like they had 20 extra hp or something.

It cannot earn car owner points which are different than driver owner points. There is a separate car owner points chase, but nobody cares about that besides NASCAR teams and fans teams with multiple drivers (55, 51).

If I came off snarky, that wasn't my intention. I'd only just learned about this though, and I figured somebody else may not know about it.
