NASCAR issued four written warnings to NASCAR Sprint Cup Series teams following Saturday night’s Quaker State 400 at Kentucky Speedway in Sparta.
The No. 13 Germain Racing team of driver Casey Mears, the No. 16 Roush Fenway Racing team of Greg Biffle, the No. 33 Circle Sport team of Alex Kennedy and the No. 34 Front Row Motorsports team of Brett Moffitt all received written warnings from NASCAR for requiring too many trips through inspection before passing at Kentucky Speedway.
According to NASCAR rules, written warnings in two consecutive race weekends warrant P1 penalties, so if any of the above-mentioned teams receive a written warning for any reason for anything during the July 19 New Hampshire 301 race weekend at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Loudon, they will be issued a P1 penalty that could include last pick during the pit-stall selection process, reduced practice time, or a penalty when it comes to inspection order. So far, NASCAR’s penalty of choice in this situation has been making a team go last selecting its pit stall.
