Does NASCAR Really Have Much Cheating?

Judging from the early returns in the poll in the right sidebar, it appears a lot of folks believe there is a significant amount of cheating in the Nextel Cup Series but it's expensive and only the top teams can afford it these days.

I tend toward the same view, but creative reading of NASCAR rules has a long history and with the growing stakes to win these days, plus so many more competitive teams than even a decade ago, it seems likely there would be even more pressure now to find that "unfair advantage."
