NASCAR Penalizes TSM’s No. 32
Turner Scott Motorsports’ No. 32 Nationwide Series team has been penalized by NASCAR for rule violations discovered during post-race inspection for the Ford EcoBoost 300 at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
The team was found to have violated 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 the NASCAR rules detailed in Section 20-A of the 2013 NASCAR Rule Book or has been approved by NASCAR prior to the event); and 20A-12.8.1(B) (The car failed to meet the minimum front car heights).
As a result of the penalty, crew chief Trent Owens has been fined $10,000 and placed on NASCAR probation until April 2, 2014. The team also has been docked with the loss of six championship driver points and six championship car owner points.
