STATEMENT The following is a statement from Greg Zipadelli, competition director at Stewart-Haas Racing, regarding today's penalty levied by NASCAR against the team's #14 Sprint Cup Series entry driven by Tony Stewart for a post-qualifying rules infraction July 6 at Daytona International Speedway: "While we respect and accept NASCAR's decision, we want to be clear that there was no malicious intent. In a rush to replace a cracked rear windshield that happened during tech inspection prior to qualifying, we jostled a cooling hose that was behind the seat. We understand NASCAR's position and will abide by its decision."(7-10-2012)
Pretty little penalty. But usually in these situations there are no further penalties. Why did NASCAR decide to penalize points now This isn't the first time someone's qualifying speed has been disallowed and points were not taken away. This is the first time if any other time, that Tony has been penalized points for something to do with the car.
