Post-race inspection for today’s NASCAR Nationwide Series event at Las Vegas Motor Speedway saw Chase Elliott‘s car found to be too low and NASCAR taking the right rear shock from the car of race winner Brad Keselowski.
NASCAR has said that both issues would be handled early next week. It should be noted that Keselowski’s shock was not necessarily ruled as illegal.
Bob Pockrass of the Sporting News has combed through the Nationwide Series rule book to find what Elliott’s infraction could wind up costing him and JRM Motorsports:
Elliott finished fifth today for his inaugural Top-5 finish in NNS competition. You can find more on that in the notes.
