Ryan Newman’s #31 Penalized, docked 15 points after Darlington

nscs_championshipmediaday_111214_newmanStatement from Richard Childress Racing Regarding NASCAR Penalty Issued to the
No. 31 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Team

“We do not plan to appeal the penalty issued today to the No. 31 team. Our rear toe settings were well within specs during pre-race inspection. The car made contact with the outside wall during the race and there was clear damage to the right rear fender and tire. NASCAR has told us that the LIS standard is clear and the car must pass post-race inspection even if damage has been sustained.”
