NASCAR issued penalties to teams Wednesday as a result of infractions after the past weekend’s events at Bristol Motor Speedway. There were four written warnings for Sprint Cup teams and two Xfinity series teams were penalized, including one team that had its crew chief suspended.
The Sprint Cup teams who were warned after Sunday’s Food City 500 include the No. 4 Stewart-Haas Racing team for Kevin Harvick, the No. 19 Joe Gibbs Racing team for Carl Edwards and the No. 88 Hendrick Motorsports team for Dale Earnhardt Jr. Those teams received written warnings for failing template inspection twice during pre-qualifying. The No. 6 Roush Fenway Racing team for Trevor Bayne meanwhile, was issued a written warning for failing laser inspection twice, pre-qualifying.
