The Real Reason Matt Kenseth Got Suspended

So, Matt Kenseth got suspended for 2 Sprint car races.
From ESPN:
NASCAR has suspended Sprint Cup driver Matt Kenseth for two races after he wrecked leader Joey Logano with 47 laps remaining during the Goody's 500 on Sunday at Martinsville Speedway.
The crash appeared to be in response to an incident from two weeks earlier, when Logano turned Kenseth for the win with five laps remaining at Kansas Speedway, a move that eventually kept Kenseth from advancing to the third round of the Chase for the Sprint Cup.
Earlier Sunday, Kenseth had been involved in a wreck with Logano's Penske Racing teammate Brad Keselowski. In the second incident, Kenseth was 10 laps down when he drove Logano, the race leader at the time, into the wall.
"Based upon our extensive review, we have concluded that the No. 20 car driver, who is no longer in the Chase, intentionally wrecked the No. 22 car driver, a Chase-eligible competitor who was leading the race at the time," said Steve O'Donnell, NASCAR executive vice president and chief racing development officer. "The No. 20 car was nine laps down and eliminated the No. 22 car's opportunity to continue to compete in the race.  http://espn.go.com/racing/nascar/cup/story/_/id/14046947/nascar-suspends-matt-kenseth-2-races-wrecking-joey-logano-Martinsville
The suspension is a joke, especially since Danica Patrick, worst driver in NASCAR, did the same thing to David Guilland in the same race.
But Kenseth gets suspended for 2 races.
And the real reason?
Because of Las Vegas and Fantasy Sports.
Numerous people bet on Joey Logano to win the race in Martinsville and he got wrecked, making those who bet on Logano very upset.
Also, there is the Fantasy League, which people bet on sights like Fan Duel and those that had Logano's fans very upset.
That's the real reason and the reasons NASCAR are just pure B.S.
There have been worse crashes and fights and nothing like this suspension has been given to any driver.
Just another reason why NASCAR is a joke.
