With the four race weekend at Homestead-Miami Speedway in the rear view mirror, lets take a look at the post-race penalties assessed after the checkered flags have flown.
The No. 11 FedEx Toyota Camry, driven by Denny Hamlin, took the checkered flag first on Sunday for the third time this season. Post-race inspection for the Dixie Vodka 400 revealed no issues with the No. 11. However, there were two infractions imposed to two teams during that inspection. The No. 42 of Matt Kenseth and the No. 19 of Martin Truex Jr. were both found to have one loose lug nut following post-race inspection. Crew chiefs from each car will be assessed a $10,000 fine for the infractions.
The biggest penalty of the weekend came on Saturday’s Xfinity Series race, before the drop of the green flag. During the pace laps, ballast fell off the No. 98 Ford Mustang driven by Chase Briscoe. In accordance with NASCAR rules, the No. 98 car with lose its crew chief, car chief and head engineer for the four races following the incident. This penalty began Sunday for the No. 98 team.
Chase Briscoe would rally after Saturday’s penalty to score the win for his Stewart-Haas Racing team on Sunday.
