Kevin Harvick hosted his first radio show of the year last night; The NASCAR inspection process was a bulk of the discussion: “I don’t like handing the penalties out on Wednesday.”
Two weeks ago, Kevin Harvick was handed an L1 penalty. Last night, Kevin Harvick hosted the first show of his new season. He opened up the discussion on NASCAR inspections.
The way it works is NASCAR hauls the cars back to Concord, North Carolina. Typically, it’s 3 cars. Then, they take the entire car apart, including the engine. They search the entire car for rule breaking scenarios.
On Tuesday, NASCAR announces what they found if anything along with the corresponding penalties. For the West Coast races, it’s pushed back to Wednesday as it takes an extra day to get the car back across the country to the NASCAR R&D Center just to begin the inspection.
“I don’t like handing the penalties out on Wednesday. I think it’s confusing to our fans. I think it’s confusing to the competitors,” Kevin Harvick details via his own radio show ‘Happy Hours’ via Sirius XM.
