Safety Safari never Sleeps

There's always some interesting information on the NHRAracer.com website (a sub-site of the main NHRA page), but the past week has been full of "Statement(s) of Action Against Participants", including one bombshell that dropped late on Friday. Here is the full statement from the NHRA, followed by a link to a story on the Maynard Family Racing (Schumacher's team owner) rebuttal.

Tony Schumacher was fined $10,000 for driving a vehicle that had two disabled safety systems, and an additional $10,000 for bypassing a performance restriction device for a total fine of $20,000. In addition, Mr. Schumacher will forfeit 50 championship points. These infractions occurred on Mr. Schumacher’s Top Fuel entry during round 2 of eliminations of the Lucas Oil Nationals event at Brainerd International Raceway in Brainerd, MN. The fine will be dedicated to enhancing the capabilities of the Safety Safari. The fine and the forfeiture of points is appealable.

Here's the link to the story from the Competition Plus website: TONY SCHUMACHER PLANS TO APPEAL. I'm sure this is far from the end of the story and we're sure this will be one of the major topics of conversation going into the Dodge Power Brokers NHRA U.S. Nationals, which starts with Sportsman Parking TODAY. Yes, it's here already. Stay tuned for more updates.
