L1 penalties have been handed out in the NASCAR Cup Series following qualifying
On Friday afternoon, the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series took to the 2-mile oval for qualifying. The session set the grid for Sunday’s race in Brooklyn, Michigan.
Ahead of qualifying, teams passed inspection. No team failed more than twice on the run through the Room of Doom.
However, after qualifying, NASCAR came across a violation. Both Richard Childress Racing entries have been handed a penalty and their times will be disallowed.
Austin Dillon set a time good enough for 7th. His teammate, Daniel Hemric was set to start in 11th. They will now move to the tail of the 38 car field.
