No Points Penalty For Sadler Team

Elliott Sadler’s NASCAR Nationwide Series-leading team escaped without a championship point penalty today, when NASCAR sanctioned the team for a body violation discovered during pre-race inspection for last weekend’s race at Richmond International Raceway.  

Sadler’s One Main Financial Chevrolet team was one of six teams – three from Richard Childress Racing and three from Turner Motorsports -- forced to remove the nose pieces from their cars when NASCAR officials determined they had been altered from their stock condition. Sadler finished sixth Friday night at RIR and saw his championship lead trimmed to just two points over defending series champion Ricky Stenhouse, Jr. 

While NASCAR has not yet released its official announcement, Sadler told Sirius XM NASCAR Radio’s Sirius XM Speedway with Dave Moody that crew chief Luke Lambert has been fined $10,000 and placed on NASCAR probation through the end of the 2012 season. The team’s car chief, Theo Gold, was also placed on NASCAR probation through the end of the year.
