On April 14th 2002 NASCAR took an unprecedent step in suspending Kevin Harvick, driver of the #29 GM Goodwrench Chevrolet in the NASCAR Winston Cup Series. Without no precedent and without specifiying why he was being suspended NASCAR took an inappropriate stand.
Despite the fact this suspension was for the Winston Cup race, the incident in question came in Saturday\'s Advance Auto Parts 250 Craftsman Truck Series race. After being spun by the #20 truck of Coy Gibbs, on a subsequent restart, there was contact and a resulting spin of the #20 truck by Harvick\'s truck. NASCAR parked the #6 of Harvick, and sent him into the NASCAR hauler. NASCAR accused Harvick of planning to wreck Gibbs, but never aired a tape of Harvick himself saying this. Furthermore, Harvick was a complete gentleman in the hauler and did not insult or defame NASCAR.
Without proof of any premeditation, NASCAR went way over the line in their suspension of Kevin. We the undersigned fans of good racing and fair judgements by NASCAR hereby show our support to Kevin, and against NASCAR\'s ruling.
