HE WHO HAS THE MOST FUN AT THE
CHECKERED FLAG WINS!
The not so Ole Days but good none the less...
Robin Pemberton & The Grey Area
A crew chief from 1985 through 2001, Pemberton holds the distinction of
being the most monetarily penalized mechanic in NASCAR history. On
the list of NASCAR's top-ten biggest fines, Pemberton shows up three
times for a total of $85,000.
The biggest of those penalties came in 1990, when a carburetor spacer plate
was found in Mark Martin's car following a win at Richmond in late
February. The dime part cost Pemberton forty large.
The team was also docked 46 points, which hurt more than a little when
Martin ended up losing the championship to Dale Earnhardt by only
26 points in November.
