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.

    keselowski won a championship, because nascar figured they owed Roger a championship.
    nascar should be checking Penske more closely.

    If a car passes pre race inspection then post race inspection is a joke except for engine tear down of the winning car. A lot can happen during the race to effect the posture of the car. I am not a BRad K fan but come on NASCAR why didn’t you find the shock in the pre race inspection and how did Elliots car get lower? NASCAR is a joke anyways with all their technical stuff.

    Post race inspection is a joke. If the car passed pre race that’s it except for a teardown of the winning engine.
