I'll admit, I'm not a big fan of Kenseth, but I definitely thought the penalties were way over the cliff. At least the revised penalties make a lot more sense now.

Penske was obviously impressed with his Mario Kart resume and hired him as an engineer as a way to build experience. He's moving up the ranks every day.

Glad these penalties were reduced. They were definately way too steep to begin with! I think the increased penalty for the manufacturers championship is more appropriate, too (as the infraction was in a TRD part).
