NASCAR: Series hands out Darlington truck team penalties Thursday

ASCAR penalized four Craftsman Truck Series teams on Thursday morning, all for the same violation from the past two race weekends at Darlington Raceway and Kansas Speedway.

Each of the four teams was discovered to have violated NASCAR Rule Book Sections B&C: Driver’s Window Net, a safety penalty.

A driver’s window net must meet the SFI 27.1 specification and display a valid SFI 27.1 label. This SFI specification means that the window net has been tested to meet the minimum standards for safety.

Additionally, window nets must not be used beyond two years from the date it was manufactured.

For the Darlington infractions, the Nos. 46 and 47 Toyotas of G2G Racing, driven by Brennan Poole (36th) and Dawson Cram (35th), respectively, were found to have violated the rule book. Crew chiefs Timothy Silva (No. 46) and Daniel Killius (No. 47) were each fined $5,000 and each team has been assessed with the loss of 25 points.

For Kansas, the Nos. 12 and 20 Young’s Motorsports Chevrolets of Spencer Boyd (26th) and Nick Leitz (21st), respectively, were hit with the infraction penalties. As a result, crew chiefs Bradley Means (No. 12) and Joseph Lax (No. 20) were each fined $5,000 and both teams incurred a 25-point penalty.

G2G Racing made a statement on Twitter Thursday afternoon, indicating the team intended to appeal the decision.
