And the hypocrisy, a driver gets in trouble (fined, etc) for throwing a

helmet at another car, or getting in a fight. And yet when Nascar is putting together a commercial, what is the first clips they look for - the clips showing drivers throwing a helmet, etc Something is wrong when you fine a driver and deduct points for an action that you then use for your advertising. It's like Nascar is saying, "don't do this, but if you do we are going to replay it constantly in our commercials to draw interest from the fans". On the one hand they are trying to sanitize it (as the previous post said), but at the same time they realize that they are not giving the fans what they want.
