Two Xfinity crew chiefs ejected under new tech policy

Saturday, 17 February 2018

1.3k Shares
NASCAR ejected three Xfinity Series crew members for the remainder of the weekend at Daytona International Speedway.
Under its new at-track deterrence model, NASCAR officials ejected crew chief Nick Harrison and car chief Michael Scearce of the No. 3 Richard Childress Racing team. NASCAR stated a rear suspension violation was discovered during inspection.

Austin Dillon is scheduled to drive the car in today's PowerShares QQQ 300.
Mike Harmon's crew chief, Robert Scott, was also ejected after the No. 74 car failed pre-qualifying inspection four times. NASCAR did not let either car qualify this morning. As a result, Harmon will miss the race and Dillon makes the race on owner points.
Any additional penalties for these two teams will be announced next week.

Truex's car chief ejected after failing inspection

Friday, 23 February 2018


By Kelly Crandall / Image by Harrelson/LAT


972 Shares
Martin Truex Jr.'s car chief, Blake Harris, has been ejected for the rest of the weekend at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

The No.78 Toyota failed inspection at the optical scanning station three times, and with NASCAR's at-track deterrence model for this season, it results in a crew member being ejected. Truex will also have to serve a 30-minute hold in final practice Saturday afternoon.

The issue was with the rear wheel alignment and rear toe.

Truex did not attempt a qualifying lap and will start last in the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500. Furniture Row Racing said they ran out of time to go through inspection a fourth time.
"Look, it's a new process and we're working hard, collectively the whole garage is, to figure it out, figure the boundaries out and how to get through," team president Joe Garone said. "NASCAR's working with their equipment the same way, and it's just tough. It's tough.
"One time you go through, the next time you don't. You go through again and some things pass that didn't pass the time before, it's just frustrating. But we'll get it all worked out. It's just a matter of time."
Garone also said, "The tolerances are very tight and it's difficult to get through and push where you need to and be conservative where you need to. It does change every time you go through."
Had Truex failed inspection a fourth time, crew chief Cole Pearn would have been subject to ejection.
In response to Furniture Row Racing disputing the equipment and claiming it was inconsistent, NASCAR senior vice president of competition Scott Miller chuckled and said, "Of course they are going to say that.
"But we had 20 people make it through on their first attempt and multiple people saying how consistent the rear wheel alignment was versus our equipment last year. The only comments I had today on the rear wheel alignment part was positive comments, not negative comments We ended up with one, and all I can say is I feel like we did our job."

NASCAR to try new inspection process

Monday, 19 March 2018

By Kelly Crandall / Image by Whitton/LAT


846 Shares
NASCAR will try a new inspection procedure this weekend at Martinsville Speedway for the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series.
The sanctioning body is working toward a way to effectively penalize teams who do not make it through inspection and fail to make a qualifying lap. During Friday's qualifying session in Fontana, 13 cars did not get on track. Since those teams would have started the race on sticker tires, NASCAR chose to give those who did participate in qualifying the option to buy sticker tires to start the race instead of their scuffed tires to even out the playing field.

This weekend at Martinsville, inspection will take place after the Saturday qualifying session instead of beforehand, as has been the norm. Teams who fail inspection will have their times disallowed and will start at the rear of the field.
"We're actually kind of looking forward to that as way [to go] forward, actually," Scott Miller, senior vice president of competition, said Monday on SiriusXM NASCAR Radio. "It would be really good if we could get it down to one major inspection for the weekend moving forward."
The Cup Series will have a two-day show this weekend at Martinsville with practice Saturday morning and qualifying taking place after the Camping World Truck Series race that afternoon.
Inspection after qualifying will also serve as pre-race inspection, as the cars will be impounded after qualifying.
"They know how to do it," Miller said of teams getting through inspection. "It's up to the teams to not create a bad story failing post-qualifying inspection."

Busch dominates Xfinity at Pocono, fails post-race inspection

Image by Thacker/LAT
260 sharessharetweetemail
By: RACER Staff A new high-downforce, restrictor-plate competition package at Pocono Raceway brought a familiar result on Saturday — at least where the NASCAR Xfinity Series is concerned.Overcoming a pit road speeding penalty that sent him to the back of the field for the start of the second 25-lap stage in the Pocono Green 250, Kyle Busch clawed his way through the field to win the 92nd race of his career.It was Busch’s first Xfinity win at Pocono, in his second start at the 2.5-mile triangular track. And it was Busch’s first Xfinity victory of the season in his fourth start of the year.However, NASCAR announced after the race that the No. 18 failed post-race inspection height measurements as the car was too high in the left front.Results StandingsBusch’s No. 18 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota was the clear class of the field. Only the speeding penalty put the outcome in doubt. Busch grabbed the lead from pole winner Cole Custer on Lap 3 of 100 and held it through the end of Stage 1, winning that leg by 7.171 seconds over teammate Christopher Bell.But both Busch and Bell were too fast on pit road during stops and Lap 28, and the teammates restarted 21st and 22nd on Lap 31. By the end of Stage 2, won by Paul Menard, Busch had climbed to sixth, and from there it was a matter of time before he returned to the top spot.That happened when he stayed out under caution after Bell and Justin Allgaier, two of the top contenders, wrecked on the Long Pond straightaway on Lap 60 and exited the race. Busch held the lead from the restart on Lap 66 to the finish and crossed the stripe 2.521 seconds ahead of runner-up Chase Elliott, who was subbing for suspended Spencer Gallagher.“The car was on rails this week,” Busch said. “It was last week, too (in an eighth-place finish at Charlotte), but we were just able to over the deficit we had this weekend (from the penalty) and bring it back to the front.”Busch’s only worry was getting through heavy race traffic in his charge from the back to the front after the start of the second stage.“You’re always worried about something crazy or an unpredictable situation happening,” Busch said. “We just kind of had to bide our time and be patient a little bit, kind of make moves when we could make moves…“All in all, though, we knew we had speed in our race car, and it was really fast out front, once we got to those top five, top six cars.” Daniel Hemric ran third, followed by Austin Cindric, Custer and series leader Elliott Sadler.Busch got 48 laps out of his last tank of fuel. Elliott, who passed Hemric for second with one lap left, was hoping Busch’s Camry would sputter before he reached the finish line.“We came in to top off (on Lap 5,” Elliott said. “We wanted to be on the good side of fuel, and I was hoping these guys would push it a little too close. … But it was a lot of fun, and I’m looking forward to the next one.”Bell and Allgaier were victims of the Lap 60 crash that started with Sadler pushing Allgaier up the straightaway between Turns 1 and 2 in close quarters with the No. 28 Ford of Dylan Lupton. Contact between the cars of Lupton and Allgaier turned Allgaier’s Chevrolet toward the wall, where he collected Bell’s Toyota in the process. Both cars were damaged too severely to continue.“I just made a mistake there whenever I followed Kyle (Busch) to Pit Road at the end of the first stage, Bell said. “He was going really fast, and I thought I could, too. And I just ended up speeding.“There was nothing I could have done there with Justin, for that matter. We were just victims of Pocono restarts. It just got really hairy. It was exciting. That’s why sometimes we love it and sometimes we hate it.”

By: Kelly Crandall June 10, 2018 11:30 AM Three of the four Joe Gibbs Racing cars will start at the rear of the field at Michigan International Speedway.The Nos. 11, 18, and 20 will give up their top-10 starting spots in the FireKeepers Casino 400 as NASCAR announced all three had inspection failures for splitters that were not in tolerance. Kyle Busch had qualified third, Erik Jones eighth and Denny Hamlin 10th. NASCAR officials began cracking down on splitters last month at Dover. All splitters must be flat.

Any additional penalties would be announced next week.

Harvick among four that fail Pocono inspection more than once
No inspection before qualifying, but penalties afterward!
Thirteen drivers had their qualifying times disallowed at Pocono Raceway after failing post-qualifying inspection.
Could you tell us what we should fix?

By: Kelly Crandall July 28, 2018 5:44 PM Thirteen drivers had their qualifying times disallowed at Pocono Raceway after failing post-qualifying inspection.Kevin Harvick and Kyle Busch each lost their front row starting spots, giving Daniel Suarez the pole. Busch will start 28th and Harvick 29th, respectively.Behind them will be Joey Logano, Clint Bowyer, Kyle Larson, Ryan Blaney, Aric Almirola, Jimmie Johnson, Paul Menard, Austin Dillon, William Byron, Darrell Wallace Jr., and Kasey Kahne.Related

Additionally, Harvick was one of two drivers who had his time disallowed, car chief ejected and will lose 10 championship points for failing three times. Kahne was the other driver. Menard and Logano also had their car chiefs ejected as their cars failed twice.“Most of the problems were centered around the body scan, but not all, some were mechanical measurements with the rear toe,” NASCAR senior vice president of competition Scott Miller said. “We’re disappointed in this, but we’re certainly confident in our process. “The teams didn’t do a real good job here today. If 27 of them can do it right, the other 13 can do them right.”Daniel Suarez, who was third fastest, and Denny Hamlin, who originally qualified seventh, were the only two in the first seven cars to pass inspection. Starting lineupThis is just the second time this year NASCAR has had a two-day Cup schedule, meaning NASCAR did not put the cars through tech before qualifying. Only three cars failed at Chicago, the first weekend using that procedure.

Suarez goes from qualifying third to winning his first career Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series pole.“I really wish I can next time get a pole being the fastest guy, not getting a couple of guys disqualified, but it’s fine we’ll take it,” said Suarez. “The car was fast. I felt like we had actually a pretty good lap going in the last round. Very proud of my guys, they’ve been working extremely hard the last few months.” Inspection is still ongoing in the Cup Series garage, and the full starting lineup is unofficial.
