03:52 PM ET 04.16 | Consistency or lack thereof in NASCAR is always debated among the media and race fans alike in what seems to be a never ending issue. Yesterday, NASCAR made a controversial decision to leave Brad Keselowski alone and not fine him for his incensed remarks following the NRA 500. The next decision NASCAR makes could also cause many fans and members of the media to criticize them and that is what to do with Ron Hornaday. At Rockingham, the four-time champion turned rookie Darrell Wallace Jr. into the wall under caution. He was forced to go to the end of the longest line for the restart and was called to the hauler following the event. Now Ron vehemently denied that he intentionally wrecked Wallace but the video shows exactly what his intent was.

With as crazy as the Trucks schedule is, I'm thinking NASCAR is hoping fans forget what happened before the next race in three weeks! Of course the media will blow the whole thing out of proportion, probably by having interviews with Wallace and Hornaday, then ask if Wallace will take his payback whenever he and Hornaday are within 20 car-lengths of one another, and ultimately sound disappointed when nothing happens.

Buckshot Jones did it about 10 yrs. ago at Bristol but he spun out sat in turn 3 for the car to come back around that spun him out then t-boned him into the wall.

He was suspended for the next race. They need to follow that example and suspend drivers for flagret actions.

Please.. I've seen worse done on the 'cool-down' lap after the race.. could it be that Nascar is trying to protect an up-coming protege??
