I signed.  up to 542 signatures when I signed.

Ridiculous penalties.  I think there are plenty of people that will give NASCAR two earfuls over this in the Tuesday meeting.

Don't count on it. Why would they risk their neck against the beast right now? After all, that $200,000 penalty money would be divided among the top 25 points finishers at the end of the year.

Joined a few days ago and sent it to 4 or 5 people, only my wife has joined since she is also a (converted by me) Carl fan.  Boo to the rest of them.

I believe they have changed the policy. The fine money goes to charities through the NASCAR foundation.

Right now at 700 SIGNATURES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Talked with NA$CAR via their online help agent and although I didn't get too much information, I at least got a phone number and a "snail mail" address. Will keep trying to get more!

I will look through my rule book and packet from NASCAR that I got with my license to see if there is a place to send stuff like this to.  I will pm you Matt if I find anything of help.

And now up to 800!!!!!! :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

I wasn't able to print a "hard copy" of the entire petition out (not enough ink/paper/money) but in the letter, I stated the facts/history/dates of the petition and gave them the link to the petition webpage so that they may verify those who signed if they wish. I sent several snail mail copies out Saturday to:
NASCAR
PO Box 2875
Daytona Beach, FL 32120

1-Attn: Brian France
2-Attn: Max Helton
3-Attn: Charles Strang (National Stock Car Racing Commisioner)
4-Attn: George Silbermann (NSCR Chairman & NASCAR Managing Director of Operations)

Unfortunately the only email contact I was able to obtain from NA$CAR was the generic fanfeedback@nascar.com

As we all know, it will fall on deaf ears. But I feel good inside knowing that I at least *TRIED.* I know I'll never realistically be able to change the world, but hey, I'll go down swinging regardless and when its all said & done with, I will have at least made an effort.

I am VERY proud of this accomplishment regardless! To me, 800 signatures is a ****LOT**** of people considering that this whole thing has had absolutely *NO* form of press/publication whatsoever, aside from Jay mentioning it on the front page of www.racingunderdogs.com

It has been entirely word-of-mouth & for an underdog in the mass marketing world of NA$CAR, I think its a pretty neat sight to see that so many people care about Carl!!! 

I was also VERY pleased to see that so many people made additional comments rather than just merely signing their name. So many people took the time to vent and/or explain WHY they thought this whole thing was bogus and to show their love for Carl and those like him who helped build NA$CAR. There are some very well written statements on there too & it makes me proud to be a fan of his when reading stuff like that, as I CAN'T STAND the stereotypical NA$CAR superstar fan who can somehow still find a way to misspell the word, "Hendrick" and has the mental capacity of a 3 year old.

That's another reason why I've always loved this community. Just one 2 minute browsing of most other message boards (SPEED, Thats Racin.com, FOX, Jayski, Racing-Reference and most other drivers...big or small) will instantly kill thousands of your brain cells if you read the posts. I love being surrounded by intelligent folks and even though I may be the dumbest one here, any time spent here is usually productive and informative.

Regardless of what happens, I'm keeping a .txt version of the petition thingy in my scrap book!!!! I'm pretty proud & heck, still pass the word around!!!
I would rather have a mind opened by wonder instead of one slammed shut by belief.

Hang in there Carl.  It's pretty pathetic what Brian "I got my job because of my Daddy" France and Mike "I only care about the Big Budget Teams" Helton has done to you. >:(

I signed the petition because I believe NASCAR is totally in the wrong here.

However, I've been a NASCAR fan since 1970. I've yet to see that the people in charge of NASCAR care at all what the fans think. Only the drivers care what the fans think. This will get nowhere, because we all know NASCAR knows everything, is is never wrong.
