Darlington infraction results in penalties for Sam Mayer’s NASCAR team

NASCAR issued an L1-level penalty to the No. 1 team at JR Motorsports after their violation of Sections 14.3.1.4 A of the NASCAR Rule Book during last weekend’s race at Darlington. This rule mandates that any chassis that has been repaired, modified or changed must undergo re-certification before being used in an Event. As a result, Sam Mayer received a 10-point deduction and the team also received a 10-point penalty, with crew chief Mardy Lindley suspended for the Xfinity race at Charlotte Motor Speedway on May 25th. Mayer, who currently has a win this season, dropped from 11th to 12th in the season standings.

Meanwhile, Jimmie Johnson was announced as part of NBC’s Indy 500 broadcast and will cover select NASCAR Cup races this season. Additionally, NASCAR took four Xfinity cars, including the No. 1 Chevrolet, to the R&D Center for further inspection after the race, but there were no issues with the No. 00 Ford of Stewart-Haas Racing or the No. 20 Toyota of Joe Gibbs Racing or No.21 Chevrolet of Richard Childress Racing
