DEI, double duty drivers, and more news

NASCAR denies the appeal by the DEI people for the penalties handed out to Martin Truxes Jr.  The crew chief Kevin Manion was fined $100,000 and suspended six races, the car chief Gary Putnam was suspended for six races, and Martin Truex Jr. wound with a 150 point fine.

Scenedaily.com reports on double-duty drivers and their plans next year.  Clint Bowyer will not do it next year. Carl Edwards may not do it.  David Reutimann would like to do it.

Kyle Petty is going to have an extended driving vacation. He is not going to be in the Sprint Cup race on Sunday and in his place is going to Terry Labonte only because of the past champions provisional that he has.
