As for why the problems in NASCAR aren't mentioned more often on TV: I have heard that the commentators are subject to Article 4, which is supposed to strictly regulate what they say on air.  If they violate Article 4, it is said that their "hard card" is pulled.

I don't know if it exists, or if they're simply afraid of offending people.
