JRM’s No. 9 Fails Post-Race Inspection
JR Motorsports’ No. 9 Nationwide Series Chevy failed post-race inspection for the Boyd Gaming 300 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway because the splitter did not meet NASCAR’s minimum height requirements.
While NASCAR got rid of the height requirement in the Sprint Cup Series, the requirement is still enforced in the N’Wide series.
On NASCAR’s new scale of penalties, this infraction is a P2, which means it is a 10-point penalty and a fine of $5,000 – $12,500 for the crew chief.
It is not likely that Greg Ives, crew chief of the No. 9, will be suspended, but a suspension can be given for a P2 penalty.
