No. 21 Xfinity Series team issued L1-level penalty post-Kansas

NASCAR penalized the No. 21 Richard Childress Racing team in the NASCAR Xfinity Series following last weekend’s action at Kansas Speedway, with part of the impact being a points reduction that would drop driver Daniel Hemric from first place to second in the playoff standings.

The No. 21, driven by Hemric to a second-place finish, was found to be too low in post-race inspection and received an L1-level penalty for violating Section in the NASCAR Rule Book (post-qualifying and post-race front body inspection heights).

Crew chief Danny Stockman Jr. was fined $10,000 and suspended from the next NASCAR Xfinity Series championship points event, which is Nov. 3 at Texas Motor Speedway. The team also was hit with 10-point losses in driver points and owner points. That drops Hemric to second in the playoff standings behind the No. 1 of Elliott Sadler.

The team has the right to appeal the penalty. Also on the penalty report:

• In the Monster Energy Series the No. 42, driven by Kyle Larson, was found to have one lug nut not safe and secure following the Kansas race. Crew chief Chad Johnston was fined $10,000.

• In the Xfinity Series, the No. 2, driven by Matt Tifft, had one lug nut not safe and secure in post-race inspection. Crew chief Randall Burnett was fined $5,000.

Hurray! I got back in synch with NASCAR just in time for the play offs! A couple of months ago, I switched service providers, going from cable to satellite. I think I only saw two races for the duration. Every week it seemed, there was some kind of…Continue
