Middlebrook Reduces Truck Series Fine

On Dec. 3, 2012, the Chief Appellate Officer John Middlebrook heard and considered the appeal of the penalties assessed to the No. 57 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series team of driver Norm Benning.

The penalties concern Sections 12-1: (Actions detrimental to stock car racing); 12-4J: (Any determination by NASCAR officials that race equipment used in the event does not conform to NASCAR rules detailed in Section 20B of the NASCAR Rule Book, or has not been approved by NASCAR prior to the event); and 20B-2.3A (Any weight added to the truck must be bolted inside the body shell in an approved weight container and in a position acceptable to NASCAR officials – improperly attached weight to the truck bed cover) of the 2012 NASCAR Rule Book.
The penalties stemmed from a failed opening-day inspection in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series event at Talladega Superspeedway on Thursday, Oct. 4.
As a result of the appeal, Middlebrook upheld the NASCAR probation of crew chief Ted Walters until Dec. 31, 2012. He reduced Walters’ fine from $5,000 to $1,000.
