Man, I hate the final stretch of the NASCAR season. There doesn’t ever seem to be any big stories that break this time of year — oh, wait. That’s right. Kevin Harvick and his team were busted with one of the biggest most egregious examples of cheating we have seen in some time in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series.

After utterly dominating the field by winning all three stages of the AAA Texas 500 and leading 177 of the 337 laps on the day in Texas, Harvick’s car was found to have an illegal spoiler at the NASCAR R&D Center during post-race tear down.

I think it’s stupid,” Busch said with frustration. “But I don’t know, I’m not the marketing genius that’s behind this deal. You know, I just do what I can do, and my part of it is what my part is.”
