Here is the release by NASCAR officials on the domestic abuse arrest of Sprint Cup driver Travis Kvapil, lets analyze it sentence by sentence :
"NASCAR does not condone the actions with which Travis Kvapil has been charged and we are disappointed to learn of this incident,"
Very standard statement for this types of things. Obviously nobody condones hitting another person, specially a woman, we all can agree on that.
The next few quotes I just don't understand:
"We have been in close communication with the race team and are in the process of gathering as much information as possible,"
"NASCAR takes this matter very seriously and will continue to monitor the situation as it moves forward."
If a man physically abuses a women they should be held responsible instantly. This kind of crime is very simple to sort out, there is usually immediate bruising or cuts, and since it doesn't appear to be a denial by Mr. Kvpil I don't understand what other information NASCAR is waiting for.
He was charged! What will they know later that they don't know now?
Kvapil was charged with assault and false imprisonment, which usually means he force her into a situation she did not want to be in.
Well I'll be darn! Here is the story from court records that has Kvapil pulling his wife by the hair into a bedroom at their home, then hit her in the head when she resisted.
Well then, isn't that enough for NASCAR to suspend Mr. Kvapil, what in Gods name do they need to know, isn't that enough.
Fans put up with a whole mess of NASCAR's inconsistencies, this one is just a bit too much.
This is not a game folks, this is a serious crime. If there ever was a ZERO TOLERANCE list in NASCAR this should be number one .
Can we all agree on that.
Maybe they should look at the stands this weekend and see how many females fans bring their kids and families to watch the sport.
Maybe, just maybe they will get NASCAR to do the right thing. NOW RATHER THAN LATER.
As always this is a fans opinion and from what I understand everybody has one and I thank God for that.
Not enough said.
