10:03 AM ET 03.03 | In 2011, NASCAR will have two random teams selected for post-race inspection, John Darby, Cup series director explained. Last year, NASCAR took the first car out as a random for post-race inspection. That's why you saw cars go to the garage early and go back out at different times in the race to not be the first car out. Darby said that NASCAR is changing how that random will be selected.

What is going on here, 3 in one week OMG, as far as the checks go they all run liken rats,so's not to be 1st, LOL good Idea though.

Has to be completely random. If there is any pattern at all, the guys will notice and play accordingly.

Exactly. It should be pretty easy to make it totally random. Although Nascar seems to be able to mess some simple thing up. LOL

Here's an idea. Make one of the slots equal to the number of cautions. Watch the conspiracy theorists jump all over that one.

I have NO idea how to interpret that...

Don't they already inspect the top 5? Or at least the top 3? Maybe I'm wrong, but I thought they did.
I like your idea, lostboi, that would certainly mix things up. My idea would be to put 43 numbered slips of paper in a hat. Pick two. Match the number with the finishing spot of the team. Of course, 43 would always go to Steve Wallace.

Personally I post much more when at work than I do when I am around the house 24-7.

Last year when Bowyer got hit at New Hampshire they were taking the winner, the first car out (not due to a wreck), and one "random" car. The next week Boywer just happened to be the "random" car.

Ouch, that's cold. Not a Wallace fan but he did fairly well last year. He did have some good races and made close to a million dollars in Nationwide. Granted he seems to be a magnet for trouble on the track he did have 13 Top 10 finishes.

Good luck with that -- it has about as much chance as getting NASCAR to invert the start at least once in a race ... now that would be interesting ...
