NASCAR Cup: 15 teams docked practice time at Chicagoland Speedway


In all, 15 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series teams will lose practice time in final practice, scheduled for 2-2:50 p.m. ET Saturday, at Chicagoland Speedway in Joliet, Ill., as Cup teams prepare for Sunday’s Nickelodeon Tales of the Turtles 400, the first race of the 10-race NASCAR playoffs.

As previously reported, here, the No. 19 and and No. 20 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota teams of Daniel Suarez and Matt Kenseth were docked 30 minutes, while the No. 5, No. 48 and No. 88 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet teams of Kasey Kahne, Jimmie Johnson and Dale Earnhardt Jr.; the No. 43 Richard Petty Motorsports Ford team of Aric Almirola; and the No. 13 Germain Racing Chevrolet team of Ty Dillon were docked 15 minutes of final-practice time at Chicagoland Saturday because of inspection issues last weekend at Richmond (Va.) Raceway.

The teams of Johnson and Almirola will miss a total of 30 minutes of final-practice time at Chicagoland, with 15 minutes added to their penalties for twice failing pre-qualifying inspection at Chicagoland on Friday.

The No. 77 Furniture Row Racing Toyota team of Erik Jones also will lose 30 minutes of practice time, because the No. 77 failed Chicagoland pre-qualifying inspection three times.

The No. 95 Leavine Family Racing Chevrolet team of Michael McDowell, the No. 4 and No. 41 Stewart-Haas Racing Ford teams of Kevin Harvick and Kurt Busch, the No. 47 JTG-Daugherty Racing Chevrolet team of A.J.
