As NASCAR’s top three series head to Daytona International Speedway to contest the road course at the historic facility, Michigan proved to be a career weekend for Kevin Harvick, who claimed both NASCAR Cup Series wins on Saturday and Sunday. However, not all drivers and teams walked away from Michigan with victories. Here’s a look at the post-Michigan penalty report!
Both the No. 11 of Denny Hamlin and the No. 24 of William Byron were issues lug nut penalties after each car was found to have one lug nut lose after the races. Crew chiefs of each team, Chris Gabehart and Chad Knaus, were both fined $10,000 as a result of the penalties.
Before Saturday’s race at Michigan, both the No. 6 of Ryan Newman and No. 17 of Chris Buescher Roush Fenway Racing Ford Mustangs were found to have altered rear spoilers on their cars. Under NASCAR rules, all spoilers must remain exactly as the manufacturer has created them. Both crew chiefs, Scott Graves and Luke Lambert, were fined $25,000. Both teams were also docked 20 owner points, as well as 20 driver points.
In the Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series, the No. 13 ThorSport Racing truck driven by Johnny Sauter was assessed an L1 level penalty. This was due to the truck not having proper bed side panel flanges not being in line with NASCAR specifications. The team was assessed 10 driver points and 10 owner points as a result.
