Jimmie Johnson, last weekend's winner at Dover, DE, had his rear shocks confiscated by
the France Family Henchmen
NASCAR officials, along with Kyle Busch, Ryan Newman, Rusty Wallace, Mark Martin and Greg Biffle. The reason? Other drivers were complaining about the height of the cars' rear ends. While they all passed initial tech inspection, Johnson and Busch's cars failed the first time around until the shocks were given time to settle. Ironically, Busch made a comment to his crew chief about the height of Johnson's car during the race. Pot calling the kettle black, Kyle? Or simply excessive fiddling by those meddling Frances?
