NASCAR: penalties issued


NASCAR released its weekly penalty report Tuesday for the Sept. Sept. 22-24 race weekend that included races at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Loudon for the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup and Camping World Truck series and race at Kentucky Speedway in Sparta for the Xfinity Series. The latest report lists penalties to one team in each of the three national divisions.

The most severe penalties were issued to the No. 2 Richard Childress Racing Chevrolet team in the Xfinity Series and the No. 51 Kyle Busch Motorsports Toyota team in the Truck Series.

Crew chief Randall Burnett was fined $10,000 and suspended from one race and the team was docked 10 owner points, because the No. 2 car didn’t meat NASCAR’s rear height requirement in post-race inspection after the Kentucky race. Ben Kennedy drove the No. 2 at Kentucky. He is a part-time driver in the series, and therefore, not affected by the loss of 10 driver points.

Kevin Manion, crew chief on the No. 51 truck, was fined $5,000 and suspended one race, because of an issue with the truck’s rear-brake cooling assembly. The team also was docked 10 owner points. Todd Gilliland drove the truck at New Hampshire. But like Kennedy, Gilliland is a part-time driver, not affected by a loss of 10 driver points.

Mike Bugarewicz, crew chief for the No. 14 Stewart-Haas Racing Ford team of Clint Bowyer in the Cup Series, was fined $10,000, because the No. 14 car had one lug nut either loose or missing after Sunday’s ISM Connect 300.
