CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - NASCAR has stripped Joe Gibbs Racing
drivers Tony Stewart and Joey Logano of 150 points each and their
crew chiefs were suspended indefinitely Wednesday for cheating
during Saturday's Nationwide Series race.

Crew chiefs Jason Ratcliff and Dave Rogers were also fined
$50,000 each, and five other crew members were suspended
indefinitely.

After Stewart finished third in Saturday's race at Michigan
International Speedway in the No. 20 car and Joey Logano was
seventh in the No. 18, inspectors found magnets under the gas
pedals of both cars in attempt to mask the cars' true horsepower.

Gibbs' No. 18 and No. 20 Toyotas have dominated this season,
combining to win 14 of 25 Nationwide races.

Last month, NASCAR ordered all Toyota teams to cut about 15 horsepower in their motors.

    More than Points and a fine should have been imposed by NASCAR,some of the Gibbs Teams wins should have been revoked and the win credited to the second place winner or what ever order the next Non-Gibbs car finished in. But then again its NASCAR's decision and as everyone knows they call the Shots the Way they want to!
