Penske Racing wasn’t alone in the penalty receiving line after last weekend’s NASCAR races. Texas Motor Speedway runner-up Martin Truex Jr. and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series driver Ron Hornaday also fell afoul of the long arm of the law.
Truex was issued a six-point driver and Michael Waltrip Racing a six-point owner point penalty His crew chief Chad Johnston (pictured) was fined $25,000 and placed on probation until June 5.
MWR has decided not to appeal. The team was found in violation of Sections 12-1 (actions detrimental to stock car racing); 12-4J (any determination by NASCAR officials that the race equipment used in the event does not conform to NASCAR rules); and 20-12.8.1B (the car failed to meet the minimum front car heights during post-race inspection) of the 2013 rule book.
Hornaday, meanwhile, was issued a 25-point penalty and placed on probation until June 12 for wrecking driver Darrell Wallace Jr. under a yellow flag in the NCWTS race at Rockingham Speedway. Kyle Busch performed the same maneuver on Hornaday at Texas in November, 2011. Busch was parked for the remainder of that weekend.
