Austin Dillon and RCR team penalized for Kentucky infraction

By admin | July 2, 2012

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (July 2, 2012) – NASCAR has penalized the No. 3 team in the NASCAR Nationwide Series as a result of rule infractions discovered during post-race inspection last Friday at Kentucky Speedway.

The No. 3 car was found to be in violation of Sections 12-1 (actions detrimental to stock car racing); 12-4J (any determination by NASCAR officials that race equipment used in the event does not conform to NASCAR rules); and 20A-12.8.1C (body height requirements – car failed to meet the minimum rear car heights) of the 2012 NASCAR rule book.

As a result, crew chief Danny Stockman Jr. has been fined $10,000, while owner Morgan Shepherd and driver Austin Dillon have been penalized with the loss of six championship owner and six championship driver points, respectively. In addition, Stockman and car chief Robert Strmiska continue to remain on NASCAR probation until Dec. 31.

    Sheperd is the owner in name only. It was one of those off season points buyout deals.

    10k will hardly be a deterrant for RCR will it?

    It’s good to know that disrespect to the media is a worse crime than cheating on the cars. Kind of puts modern Nascar into perspective.
