    I'm just curious as to what Victory Lane protocol Mike Helton will issue tomorrow in the driver's meeting.

    Something needs to be done but Helton and France are ruining this sport, IMHO

    Good thinking. If all the sponsors refused to have the dumb bottle of Powerade sitting on their cars, wonder what would happen then? I don't see why a car that Pepsi, or whoever, has paid a mint to sponsor has to have Powerade sitting on the roof. Let them put a big banner behind the winners circle and that's enough.

    So now do you think Helton/NASCAR will make a ruling on getting ill and not being able to make it to the Powerade Victory Lane?
