In pre-race inspection, NASCAR found improperly mounted ballast on the No. 12 Team Penske Ford Mustang.
The result’s the lack of 10 driver/proprietor factors and the suspension of Blaney’s crew chief Todd Gordon from Sunday’s race. He will even lose his beginning place and be compelled to start out from the rear of the sector.
The 10 level deduction drops Blaney to the underside of the playoff subject for the beginning of the primary spherical. Only Kurt Busch and Matt DiBenedetto will start with fewer factors. Prior to the penalty, Blaney was seventh general.
A whole penalty report will likely be issued early subsequent week.
