(AP) --- Several NASCAR drivers think tire tampering is a real problem. NASCAR has confiscated tires from teams after the last two races. It took tires from red-hot points leader Kevin Harvick and Joey Logano after the race at Phoenix two weeks ago, and declared them fine a few days later. It took tires from Harvick, Kurt Busch, Paul Menard and Ryan Newman last weekend. Four-time series champion Jeff Gordon figures the suspicions are true. He says NASCAR has cautioned crew chiefs against altering tire pressure in meetings, and he says "that tells me it's being done." Denny Hamlin agrees. He says anyone caught manipulating air pressure during a race "should be gone forever."
