Nationwide teams have bumper covers confiscated

All three Richard Childress Racing teams and all three Turner Motorsports teams replaced the upper front bumper covers on their Nationwide Series cars Thursday after NASCAR confiscated modified bumper covers during inspection.

Nationwide teams went through inspection Thursday at Richmond International Raceway to prepare for practice Friday morning and the race Friday night.

Any penalties will be announced next week. No crew members were ejected from the track.

Included in the group were the cars of series points leader Elliott Sadler, who drives for RCR and has a four-point lead on Roush Fenway Racing’s Ricky Stenhouse Jr.

Along with Sadler, other drivers who had their front bumper covers confiscated were RCR’s Austin Dillon and Kevin Harvick and Turner’s James Buescher, Justin Allgaier and Kasey Kahne.

Sadler has won two races this year while Buescher and Kahne have wins for Turner Motorsports.
