The National Stock Car Racing Appeals Panel today heard and considered the appeal of the No. 57 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series team.
The penalties stemmed from a failed opening-day inspection in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series event at Talladega Superspeedway on Thursday, Oct. 4.
The original penalty assessed was:
-Crew chief (Ted Walters): $5,000 fine; placed on NASCAR probation until Dec. 31;
The Appellant appealed the above penalty assessed to the No. 57 team.
Upon hearing the testimony and carefully reviewing the facts, it was a unanimous decision by the National Stock Car Racing Appeals Panel to uphold the original penalties assessed by NASCAR. Therefore, the $5,000 fine and probation for crew chief Ted Walters will be effective immediately.
The Appellant has the right under Section 15 of the rule book to appeal this decision to the National Stock Car Racing Chief Appellate Officer.
