Every Friday night we have our man and crew chief of the number 38 car, Frank Kerr, on SportsTalk to give us a feel for what’s going on in the stock car world from Inside the pits.
The NASCAR world has been buzzing lately thanks to loads of drama and perceived improprieties that took place last weekend at Richmond that’s called the sports integrity in to play.
The normal Chase field of 12 has been extended to 13 to include Jeff Gordon for 2013 because of the actions of many drivers. NASCAR determined that drivers were spun intentionally, unnecessary pit stops were taken to give up track position, and more in Richmond and the ripple effect caused Gordon to be pushed out of the chase
NASCAR President Mike Helton, after initially deciding that NASCAR would do nothing to address the ripple effect that took place over the weekend, later allowed Gordon entry.
Even Frank’s own David Gilliland was blamed for giving up track position. Friday he joined SportsTalk to address the entire situation.
