According to a tweet from The NASCAR Insiders, Front Row Motorsports could be facing penalties from NASCAR after the sanctioning body found illegal bleeder mechanisms on the No. 38 Ford, driven by Travis Kvapil. Nothing has been announced or confirmed at this point, but if true, penalties would be announced Tuesday or Wednesday.
Update: At this point, penalties are expected to be $250,000 fine, loss of 300 owner’s and driver’s points, and the suspension of crew chief Steven Lane.
If that’s the case, Travis Kvapil will fall from 31st to 36th position in the driver’s standings, and the No. 38 would fall from to 32nd position to 38th position in the owner’s points standings.
