NASCAR Cup: practice penalties from Charlotte held over to Talladega


Nineteen of the 40 teams that participated in the Bank of America 500 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race at Charlotte Motor Speedway in Concord, N.C., on Oct. 8 were supposed to be docked time in final practice the previous day because of inspection issues the previous race weekend at Dover (Del.) International Speedway or in pre-qualifying inspection at Charlotte. But rain forced cancellation of that practice session. As a result, those penalties will be served during the upcoming Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway race weekend that will culminate in Sunday’s running of the Alabama 500.
