MWR Busted.....

From CBS Sports..... 8-)

NASCAR took the windshields belonging to the three Michael Waltrip Racing entries Friday at Talladega Superspeedway.

The sanctioning body termed the three windshields from cars driven by David Reutimann, Martin Truex Jr. and Bobby Labonte of JTG Daugherty Racing as having "unapproved modifications." The windows were put on display behind the NASCAR hauler during Friday's practice sessions.

NASCAR officials expect fines and penalties to be handed down to the team later this week.

Re: MWR Busted.....

I saw that Mikey was entered to try to make the race, I guess his windshield didn't have any modifications. MWR likes to push the envelope, this is not the first time their cars haven't passed due to some parts or modifications.

Re: MWR Busted.....

The windscreens where found to be to thin.
I would not call that being modified I would call that being out of spec or below tolerance.

Re: MWR Busted.....

Kinda strange that the "boss mans" windshield wasnt altered....hhmm . What really sux is the bonehead decisions made by crew, cc or whoever reflects badly on the drivers and punished and prolly didnt even know this was happening....MTX and Bobby r stand up guys and wouldnt be a part of it....Mr.Truex doesnt need tricks to gain...so i really hate it for them....
