Maybe they say hey we have to stop this kinda stuff and upholding this decision will make sure the boys play nice from now on?I see no reason it wouldn't be reduced other than it was in the heat of the Chase. Basing it off not only Gordon v. Bowyer but Keselowski v. Edwards as well, the absolute MAX I see is the upholding of the probation, and suspension possibly reduced to points/fine. Absolute worse case scenario (i.e. NASCAR really over-hyping the Chase thing) is a one race suspension. Factor in the plethora of other less "severe" incidents that went on without a penalty in the recent history, and I still say Kenseth has a very strong case, and NASCAR could very easily wind up with egg on it's collective face once again.
It'll be entertaining to see (should the penalty be reduced) how the NASCAR PR moguls spin that.
