Hendrick Motorsports | Johnson sees semblance in R. Gordon's position

Lee Montgomery, of SceneDaily.com, reports Hendrick Motorsports driver and defending Cup champion Jimmie Johnson was not surprised to hear that Robby Gordon Motorsports driver Robby Gordon was fined $100,000 and docked 100 driver points for having an unapproved nose on his Dodge during the Daytona 500. However, Johnson can empathize with Gordon. Johnson and Hendrick teammate Jeff Gordon lost 100 points and saw their teams fined $100,000 for altering the fenders to their cars last year at Infineon Raceway. Crew chiefs Chad Knaus and Steve Letarte were also suspended for six weeks, as was Robby Gordon's crew chief, Frank Kerr, for his rules infractions at Daytona International Speedway. NASCAR officials vowed last year to issue severe penalties for tampering with its Car of Tomorrow, and Johnson and Gordon were made examples.
