Four NASCAR Sprint Cup Series teams received written warnings from NASCAR this week because of inspection issues at Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway on Oct. 25 before the running of the CampingWorld.com 500. Issues for all four teams came during pre-race inspection.
The No. 48 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet team of Jimmie Johnson failed twice at the laser inspection station. Meanwhile, the No. 9 Richard Petty Motorsports Ford team of Sam Hornish Jr., the No. 35 Front Row Motorsports Ford team of Cole Whitt and the No. 40 Hillman Smith Motorsports Chevrolet team of Landon Cassill each failed twice at the teamplate station.
The warnings were the firsts for each of the four aforementioned teams since NASCAR modified its warnings policy, allowing teams three warnings before issuing pit selection penalties after their fourth warnings.
