Where Is Jeff Gordon's Penalty?

After failing post-race inspection yesterday, the #24 DuPont Chevy was moved to back of the field for the Daytona 500.  NASCAR claims that it was "unintentional" and therefore the team will not be fined or docked points.  This, plain & simple, is NASCAR's blatant favoritism.  It is complete bullshit that his only penalty will be starting at the back for a race that can be won from anywhere.  Where is the 25 point penalty?  Human error?  My god, when Mark Martin was fined for something incredibly similar it was 25 points a fine.  So why doesn't Gordon get one?  Someone explain this to me... I'm having trouble seeing the logic.  Then again, we're talking about NASCAR.  Shame on me for thinking they were serious about cheating.

I for one agree 100%!!!.  Gorden`s "unintentional" FAILING withoout penalty is proof that NASCAR DOES NOT HAVE THE LUG NUTS to hand out penalty's to drivers that have given the sport it's rise in fan's. Favoritism in the sport stock car racing will only give rise to more teams trying to get away with "unintentional" cheating. NASCAR had better tighten there nuts
