It was a mess of a week for NASCAR, and it needs to be fixed

An Ambulance mishap caused a traffic logjam on pit road, leading to Matt Kenseth crashing into the back of Clint Bowyer.

It's about what in the world is going on in Nascar, which announced Wednesday -- about 64 hours after the Darlington race was over -- that Denny Hamlin 's car had failed inspection and he wouldn't have the benefit of the five playoff points from that win.

So that's why it was a big deal when NASCAR threw the caution Saturday night when Derrike Cope scraped the wall with just a few laps left.

A NASCAR-directed ambulance makes a mistake and it nearly costs Kenseth a playoff spot -- and it did ruin the chances for Clint Bowyer of any hope of an upset -- and it's almost like, "Oh, sorry, we'll look into it."

They are allowed to make mistakes, such as early in the Richmond race when a huge puff of smoke out of Kenseth's car resulted in a caution even though he had locked his brakes only briefly.
