William Byron left the Homestead-Miami Speedway Sunday with the checkered flag. Furthermore, Byron is now locked into the 2021 NASCAR Playoffs. While Byron leaves Homestead with a victory, some drivers leave Homestead with some penalties. Here’s a look at the Homestead-Miami Speedway post race NASCAR penalty report!
NASCAR Cup Series Penalties
William Byron’s race-winning No. 24 Axalta Chevrolet Camaro passed post race inspection, with no issues to be reported. However, a number of teams were found to have a single lug nut lose found during post race inspections. In this case, the teams found to have a lug nut lose will be issued a $10,000 fine. The fine will be specifically handed out to the teams crew chief. The following teams were issued those fines:
-No. 8 Tyler Reddick (Richard Childress Racing)
-No. 9 Chase Elliott (Hendrick Motorsports)
-No. 18 Kyle Busch (Joe Gibbs Racing)
-No. 19 Martin Truex Jr. (Joe Gibbs Racing)
-No. 41 Cole Custer (Stewart-Haas Racing)
-No. 42 Ross Chastain (Chip Ganassi Racing)
Before the start of the Dixie Vodka 400 on Sunday, four NASCAR Cup Series drivers and teams were penalized. Because of this, four teams were required to start at the back of the field due to unapproved adjustments or failing inspection twice. As a result, the following teams were sent to the back before the start:
-No. 7 of Corey Lajoie for unapproved adjustments (Spire Motorsports)
-No. 11 of Denny Hamlin for unapproved adjustments (Joe Gibbs Racing)
-No. 15 of James Davison for failing pre-race inspection twice
-No. 48 of Alex Bowman for unapproved adjustments (Hendrick Motorsports)
NASCAR Xfinity Series Penalties
Tyler Reddick found himself finishing in second place Saturday night at Homestead-Miami Speedway. However, following post race inspection, the No. 23 RSS Chevrolet Camaro was disqualified from the race. NASCAR found that Reddick’s car failed the rear height requirement. Furthermore, the set penalty for that offense is disqualification, which dropped the No. 23 to 40th place.
