Eury Jr. could be suspended another 6 weeks Theoretically, most penalties written severe enough to include a suspension also include a probation," he said. "If Tony Jr. keeps running his yap we could easily send him home for another six weeks."
NASCAR’s John Darby Warning to suspended crew chiefs: Come to the track if you dare. Just don’t brag about it.
That was the message delivered by Nextel Cup series director John Darby prior to Thursday’s practice at Daytona International Speedway. "Personally, I don’t care if he’s watching a race from the grandstands," Darby said. "When a crew chief that went through that is bold enough to throw it back at us, we’ll react to it."
NASCAR chairman Brian France said on Tuesday that the governing body had a meeting to address the issue of suspended crew chiefs who continue to do their jobs from locations at the track but outside meeting came after Tony Eury Jr., the crew chief for Dale Earnhardt Jr., said he worked with the team last week at New Hampshire from a motorcoach on a hill overlooking the track.
Eury said on Thursday he was at five of the six races — including three in a motorcoach in the infield and one in a suite at Lowe’s Motor Speedway — after NASCAR suspended him for having an illegal rear wing mount at Darlington. The only race he missed was the road course event in Sonoma, Calif., because he didn’t want to ask the motorcoach driver to make a cross-country trip.
While Darby said it is almost impossible to police such activity, he did leave the possibility of further suspension if it is thrown in NASCAR’s face.
"Theoretically, most penalties written severe enough to include a suspension also include a probation," he said. "If Tony Jr. keeps running his yap we could easily send him home for another six weeks." More at ESPN.com
