NASCAR Issues Texas Penalties

On November 7 NASCAR issued penalties in the Camping World Truck Series after the JAG Metals 350 Driving Hurricane Harvey Relief on Friday November 3 at Texas Motor Speedway.


The GMS Racing team number 24 truck driven by Justin Haley was charged with the front and rear of the truck being below the regulation height tolerances in post race inspection. Haley drove the truck to a fifth place finish which has now been listed as encumbered.

As a result of the infraction, the number 24 truck crew chief Kevin Bellicourt has been suspended for one race – the race this weekend in Phoenix – and fined $5,000. The 24 team owner GMS Racing has been docked 10 truck owner points and Justin Haley has been docked 10 driver points.

In other NASCAR penalties, the number four truck driven by CWTS points leader Christopher Bell was charged with a loose lug nut. The Kyle Busch Motorsports truck’s crew chief Ryan Fugle has been charged with a $2,500 fine for the infraction.

During pre qualifying inspection on Friday, Chase Elliott failed to qualify his car for the AAA Texas 500 when his car made several trips through inspection and did not give the 24 Hendricks Motorsports team enough time to make it on the track to qualify. While Elliott and Hendricks did not receive any fines, the team will probably have to serve a penalty via a loss of practice time at Phoenix.
