No. 15 NASCAR Truck Team Penalized For Violations At Daytona

I guess this didn't affect his win so far.
Wasn't that spoiler damaged in the race? I guess I don't understand this rule violation..lol

No. 15 NASCAR Truck Team Penalized For Violations At Daytona





DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – NASCAR has issued penalties and fines to the No. 15 team that competes in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, as a result of rule infractions found during post-race inspection Feb. 18 at Daytona International Speedway.
The No. 15 truck driven by Michael Waltrip was found to be in violation of Sections 12-1 (actions detrimental to stock car racing); 12-4-J (any determination by NASCAR Officials that the race equipment used in the event does not conform to NASCAR rules); and 20B-3.1.2E (rear spoiler did not meet specifications in post-race inspection) of the 2011 NASCAR Rule Book.

As a result, crew chief Doug Howe has been fined $25,000 and placed on NASCAR probation until Dec. 31. Owner Billy Ballew has been penalized with the loss of 25 championship owner points.

Re: No. 15 NASCAR Truck Team Penalized For Violations At Day

I agree dani.. if it was during inspection, why are they just now saying something? I guess we'll have to wait for more details, but right now, it doesn't make sense. I haven't heard if they changed the win decision. I think they would have said so by now. It is very confusing for sure.

Re: No. 15 NASCAR Truck Team Penalized For Violations At Day

I don't really understand why NASCAR penalized him. I mean, if they can penalize him for this, then they can penalize any car that was involved in any wreck or incident that had a crushed in fender or damaged front end that didn't conform to the template. You could clearly see that this was either a part failure, or was damaged during the course of the race. And what occured isn't exactly normal, but broken spoilers and spoiler braces are more common then some would believe. They are under tremendous pressure and stress, not including the bumping and banging. I understand a rule is a rule, but man, they really threw the book at him on this one.

Re: No. 15 NASCAR Truck Team Penalized For Violations At Day

They didn't take the win or his points (if he has any cause it's truck. ) They penalized the CC & Owner didn't they? I can't believe they didn't tell him before the race or if they did it after the race. After the race would be WRONG !!!!!

Re: No. 15 NASCAR Truck Team Penalized For Violations At Day

the fine isnt anything. I dont know for sure , but I would imagine, 1st pays more than 25k than 2nd place for the opening Daytona race. Mikey has no points to take away, so the only real penalty is to the owner 25 points. Now that is the difference between 1st place & 26th place not counting bonus points. (equivilant to a 100 point penalty in the old points system)

They just said it was post race. I still don't know how they can do that after a race but they do it all the time with different parts I guess.

Re: No. 15 NASCAR Truck Team Penalized For Violations At Day

the spoilers have to be at a certain degree angle after the race. car damaged or not the spoiler needs to be in tact. waltrips spoiler broke on the white flag lap if it had broke with 3 or 4 laps to go he would of been black flagged. everyone #### about the penalty should be happy it broke when it did cause any other time than the white flag and he wouldnt of won. i get what mj says also im sick of hearing about him too. im happy for him that he won and ill bet it means a lot to him but hes such a media whore that i cant help but think half this hype he has worked up the past 2 weeks is to help his book also

Re: No. 15 NASCAR Truck Team Penalized For Violations At Day

Thanks Biff but it doesn't make sense to me to fine someone if it was damaged like it happened. I don't care for Mikey or DW, but I feel it was unfair to do it after the race. JMO I hope they appeal it.

Re: No. 15 NASCAR Truck Team Penalized For Violations At Day

when else were they supposed to do it? maybe would of been better to consider him black flagged and disqualified his finishing position?

No, I am just confused as to why it passed pre-race & then they decided to fail it Post-Race after it was determined it happened legally. Nevermind, I guess I won't get an answer to that.

Re: No. 15 NASCAR Truck Team Penalized For Violations At Day

all cars who get a post race penalty for something like that initially passed pre-race. some things happen accidentally and some are on purpose during the course of race. the penalties are nascars attempt at consistency. your right you wont get an answer you like if they didnt penalize him everyone would be #### about that.

Re: No. 15 NASCAR Truck Team Penalized For Violations At Day

Thanks again Biff, I do see what you mean now. In other words , MAYBE ? The spoiler was already defective or someone helped it a long..lol
It's just the commentators made such a big deal out of saying it happened during the race & therefore was legal in frame. Nothing was said post race by any driver or team that I heard of though. Maybe someone did complain.. who knows !!~ anyay, thanks
