NASCAR announced Wednesday that there will be no penalties for the infractions found during pre-race inspections at last weekend’s events at Daytona International Speedway. Inspectors found violations with the roof flaps on cars in both the Sprint Cup and Nationwide series.
Inspectors found that spacers that support the hinge bar used on roof flaps, which deploy during a crash and are used to keep cars from going airborne, were improperly installed. The infractions involved 16 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series teams and 15 NASCAR Nationwide Series teams. All the teams were forced to change the spacers prior to competing. MORE>>>
