NASCAR has issued a penalty to Joe Gibbs Racing’s No. 18 team for infractions found during post-race inspection for the Subway Jalapeno 250 at Daytona International Speedway.
The team was found to be in violation of Sections 12-1 (actions detrimental to stock car racing); 12-4J (any determination by NASCAR officials that the race equipment used in the event does not conform to NASCAR rules detailed in Section 20 of the NASCAR Rule Book); and 20A-12.8.1(B) (car failed to meet minimum front car heights).
As a result, crew chief Adam Stevens has been fined $10,000 and placed on NASCAR probation until Aug. 22. Car chief Christopher Landis has also been placed on probation until the 22. Owner Joe Gibbs has been penalized with the loss of six championship owner points.
