No! That wouldn't be right at all. Who ever heard of banning someone from a sport because that person was too good at it!
The sanctioning body (Nascar) needs to take care of this to create better competition. The 48 team has an advantage, but it's not the driver. There are as good of drivers on the track every week. I'll admit that the crew chief is what makes everything work on that team and they can't ban him either, unless he's doing something illegal.
Because the 48 teams cars have been one step ahead of everyone else since the COT was introduced, Nascar needs to be inspecting HMS shops and processes. Impounding their cars each time they win and tearing them down, not just the engine, but the whole car. Looking at everything with a fine tooth comb. Once they find something, even if it is not against the rules (gray area), change the rule or add another one that covers it!
This is what Nascar should do, but they won't! Remember HMS was given all that extra time to research the COT before it was given to the other teams. They had a hand in the way it's built that gave them an advantage right out of the box. There is no doubt in my mind that Nascar is giving HMS special consideration because Rick (the convicted felon) is doing something for them. He was given a presidential pardon by Bill Clinton as he left office, but so were a lot of other crooks who helped finance his candidacy! This whole HMS dynasty thing smells funny, even if it's not.
