NASCAR Issues Behavioral Penalties

NASCAR has issued Behavioral Penalties to five crew members for their actions during pre-race March 21 at Auto Club Speedway. The crew members were working for the No. 8 NASCAR XFINITY Series team when the violations occurred. 
The crew members violated the following Sections in the 2015 NASCAR rule book: 
12-1: Actions detrimental to stock car racing: Involved in a pre-race incident; failure to comply with a directive from Track Security
12.8a: Behavioral Penalty 
Crew member Mark Armstrong has been fined $1,500, suspended from NASCAR until April 21 and placed on NASCAR probation through Dec. 31. Crew members Tyler Bullard, Nathaniel House, Jeremy Howard and Ryan Mulder have all been placed on NASCAR probation through Dec. 31.

    "Hey y'all can't push that car down pit road yet. They ain't got the radar set up yet to see if you speeding" said the rent-a-cop.

    Behavioral Penalties

    Really NASCAR? You hammered Kurt Busch for NOTHING except perceived infractions and now you want to play god with every member of the teams? I'd be back fixin' cars at a gas station in a penalized minute.

    What did they do ? Is this another case of invisible debris ?

  8. Apparently, they blew past a gate guard, refusing to show their hard cards.

    I watched today's race and my observation is that adding ALL of these ridiculous penalties for minute infractions (that tire rolled one inch over the line) is just taking away from the racing. It is getting to the point that I may stop watching. Jeff Gordon sped in a 50 foot section of the pit road and LOST his chance to win. THAT is arbitrary interference by NASCAR. I don't even like Jeff either. Let them race stop interfering with the racing or the fans will walk away.

    1. How would YOU enforce pit road speed limits then, "Anonymous?" Should we only count the 50-foot sections that your favorite driver DOESN'T speed in? If Jeff and his team can accept the accuracy of the penalty, maybe you can too!
