A six race probation to be exact.
Here is a 1:00 min clip of what happened.
Not a bad punishment I guess - I mean they both used their cars to run into each other after all.
I personally don't have an issue with how both Earnhardt and Mears handled themselves at the end of the race on Saturday. Earnhardt hit Mears on the cool down lap and spun him at a slow speed with really no risk to Mears or anyone else and Mears drove into the back of Dale's car on pit row - not too hard mind you, just enough to say "Hey screw you too!"
No harm, no danger, no real foul.
Now if these guys took it up a level like Carl Edwards did a few years back when he did a Cole Trickle on Dale Jr at Michigan in the Busch Series race then I'd have a problem.
What is your take? Should NASCAR have punished them or not?
