NASCAR Penalty: No Points Lead for you Kyle Larson

Toby Christie: Kyle Larson docked 35 points after brakes didn’t pass inspection. This gives Martin Truex a healthy point lead…which puts him in position to possibly take the regular season point title. If he does that and doesn’t win another stage or race until the playoffs, he would begin the playoffs with 43 playoff points…

Additional notes not from Toby Christie, Crew chief Chad Johnston is $75,000 less rich, and suspended for 3 races, plus the team was docked 35 driver points and 35 owner points.

Chip Ganassi Racing: “We accept the penalty and will move forward.”
