NASCAR continues to dock Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series teams practice times for multiple inspection failures the previous race weekend. At Richmond (Va.) Raceway on Friday, as teams prepared for Saturday night’s Federated Auto Parts 400 regular-season finale, the No. 77 Furniture Row Racing Toyota team of Erik Jones and the No. 34 Front Row Motorsports Ford team of Landon Casill were docked an hour of the one-hour-25-minute final practice session. Jones’ car failed qualifying inspection and pre-race inspection three times each last weekend at Darlington (S.C.) Raceway. Cassill’s car failed Darlington pre-race inspection four times.

Five other teams received less severe practice penalties. The No. 14 Stewart-Haas Racing Ford team of Clint Bowyer and the No. 20 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota team each were docked 30 minutes of time in final practice, because both of those cars failed qualifying inspection three times at Darlington.

The No. 1 Chip Ganassi Racing Chevrolet team of Jamie McMurray, the No. 3 Richard Childress Racing Chevrolet team of Austin Dillon and the No. 4 Stewart-Haas Racing Ford team of Kevin Harvick each were penalized 15 minutes in final practice. McMurray’s car failed qualifying inspection twice at Darlington, while Dillon’s car and Harvick’s car failed Darlington pre-race inspection twice.
