BREAKING NEWS: NASCAR Nails Edwards For Vegas Violations
NASCAR has issued penalties and fines to Carl Edwards’ No. 99 Office Depot Ford team as a result of rule infractions found last Sunday at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. The car was found with an improperly attached oil tank reservoir cover, prompting NASCAR to dock Edwards and car owner Jack Roush 100 championship points, respectively. In addition, if the team qualifies for the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup, NASCAR will not award them 10 bonus points for the victory. Crewchief Bob Osborne has been fined $100,000 and suspended from the next six NASCAR Sprint Cup Series events (though April 30th) and placed on probation until Dec. 31st.
