After a lackluster start to the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs, the Bank of America 500 at Charlotte Motor Speedway finally delivered a serviceable race. Unfortunately, any chance it had of being a great race was ruined by inconsistent NASCAR officiating.

Another Tuesday has come and gone. Another set of penalties have been dealt out by NASCAR. Another crew member has been suspended for the next few races. Another fine has been handed to the crew chief. Another points penalty has been handed out. Another encumbered, I mean L1, penalty (yes, because it's so different from "encumbered") was bestowed upon a driver. Another tainted finish that's allowed to remain in the record. We've repeated this process too many times to count, yet teams continue breaking the rules. In the words of Mötley Crüe, "It's the same old, same old situation."
BRISTOL, Tenn. -- One term I've heard used by those attending the Short Track Nationals at Bristol Motor Speedway this past weekend has been "Corporate NASCAR," meaning NASCAR's desires to grow the sport has made it lose touch with the interests and desires of its core fans.
