NASCAR Laser Inspection Station – Ellimination of Future P2 and P3 Penalties
No penalties to Martin Truex Jr the race winner at Chicagoland Speedway last week. The #48 of Jimmie Johnson, who also failed post-race inspection will also not be penalized. NASCAR has also loosened the infractions of failed laser inspections.
NASCAR announced Wednesday that it will solidify its post-race inspection penalty structure for infractions stemming from the laser inspection station (LIS), eliminating the P2 and P3 levels for those violations. The P4 level for LIS infractions remains, and violations at this level will remain encumbered.
NASCAR also announced that neither the No. 78 driven by Martin Truex Jr. and the No. 48 driven by Jimmie Johnson will be penalized for failing post-race LIS following last Sunday’s Chicagoland Speedway.
