NASCAR has typically penalized teams 10 to 15 points for failing the inspection station that measures tire camber, axle housing, alignment, rocker panels and the main frame rail. NASCAR won't specify where exactly they failed until they announce penalties. Penalties are typically announced Wednesday, but with this being the final week of the regular season, it could announce a penalty Tuesday to give more opportunity for any possible appeals.
The Richard Childress Racing team of Newman was penalized 10 points earlier this year for illegal brackets. NASCAR could escalate the penalty from Darlington because of the previous infraction. ESPN.com
