NBCSN’s SportsDash, Marty Snider discuss MWR penalties (VIDEO)

Sep 10, 2013, 5:02 PM EDT

NASCAR’s penalties against Michael Waltrip Racing have become one of the hottest topics in the sports world, and on today’s edition of SportsDash with Yahoo! Sports (Weekdays, 12 p.m. ET, NBCSN), Marty Snider dropped in to discuss the situation with hosts Dave Briggs and Carolyn Manno.

Since NASCAR’s judgment against MWR came out last night, many fans and media members alike have come out with the opinion that the sanctioning body, while right to impose such strict penalties, didn’t do enough overall.

Today on SportsDash, Snider not only sided with them but also expressed his view that the penalties were not enough of a deterrent to prevent future repeats of what occurred Saturday night at Richmond International Raceway.

MWR driver Martin Truex, Jr. was booted from the Chase for the Sprint Cup after he, as well as teammates Clint Bowyer and Brian Vickers, were docked 50 points by NASCAR.

But the Chase standing for Bowyer, whose spin with seven laps to go in Saturday’s Chase-deciding race is at the center of this entire saga, did not change, and he will be eligible to compete for the Cup title.

Earlier today, Bowyer made his first public comments on the controversy since the race.

    Nascar got it 2/3 right, but they should have also taken Boyer out of the Chase and allowed Gordon in. My guess is Boyer gets some help with his next spin.
