MWR’s No. 56 Too Low After NRA 500 At Texas

Martin Truex Jr., driver of the #56 NAPA Auto Parts Toyota, sits in his car in the garage area during practice for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series FedEx 400 benefiting Autism Speaks at Dover International Speedway. [1]Michael Waltrip Racing’s No. 56 team and driver Martin Truex Jr face penalties after the No. 56 Toyota was found to be too low during post-race inspection for the NRA 500 at Texas Motor Speedway.

The front of Truex’s car was too low during inspection. NASCAR took the car back to its Research and Development center in North Carolina for further evaluation.

Crew chief Chad Johnston said the shock would not rebound:

We tried to pull the shaft out of the body, and it’s just [stuck]. There’s something going on, whether it’s debris (inside) or parts and pieces of the shock.
