NASCAR will not issue any penalties to driver Kevin Harvick after a last lap crash at Talladega Sunday. NASCAR issued a statement Tuesday morning saying they had reviewed an “extensive” amount of data from Sunday’s race and that based on their review, Sunday’s results are considered official.

The incident occurred late in Sunday’s 500 mile race, but was actually set up the week prior. Last week, prior to the race NASCAR ruled that there would only be one attempt at a green-white-checkered flag finish at Talladega instead of the traditional three.

Sunday, Jamie McMurray lost an engine with five laps to go setting up what should have been the one and only attempt at a green-white-checkered flag finish. On the first attempt, Jimmie Johnson was spun behind the leaders and NASCAR threw a caution prior to the field crossing the start-finish line. NASCAR officials then ruled that there would be another attempt.

On the second attempt, Joey Logano held a slight lead over Dale Earnhardt Jr. MORE>>>
