ARCA driver to be hit with penalty from NASCAR

During a preseason ARCA test, Taylor Gray (shown above) decided it would be a good idea to record himself from inside the car while he was driving.

Bad idea.

Gray, the 15-year-old brother of NASCAR Truck Series driver Tanner Gray is likely facing a penalty from NASCAR following a recent test session.

He thought it would be a good idea to record the test from inside the car. Yes, while he was driving at full speed around the four-turn, 2.5-mile (4.023-kilometer) high-banked oval in Daytona Beach, Florida.

The NASCAR’s rule book reads (NASCAR owns ARCA):

“Except as provided below, vehicles and drivers will not be permitted to carry onboard computers, automated electronic recording devices, electronically actuated devices, smartphones/cell phones, watches, micro-processors, recording devices, filming devices, electronic digital memory chips, traction control devices, digital readout gauges and the like, even if inoperable or incomplete.”

After NASCAR was made aware of the video, Gray was called to the ARCA hauler and read the riot act.
