Kyle Larson’s team issued pit selection penalty at Pocono
By AMANDA VINCENT
NASCAR had an issue getting Sprint Cup Series cars through the laser inspection station because of a technical glitch during pre-qualifying Friday at Pocono Raceway in Long Pond, pa., in preparation for Sunday’s Pennsylvania 400. Because of the glitch, NASCAR waived the first failures for teams that were trying to get through inspection at the time.
That, though, didn’t keep Kyle Larson’s No. 42 Chip Ganassi Racing Chevrolet team from receiving its fourth written warning. And with its fourth warning, the No. 42 team was penalized pit selection for Sunday’s race.
Larson qualified 11th on Friday, and under normal circumstances, his team would’ve been 11th in line to make its pit selection for the Sunday race. But because of the penalty, the No. 42 team was last among the 40 teams to make its pit selection.
