    Harvick found with altered spoiler at Texas. Docked 40 driver and owners points. Win can not be used for advancement

    He won Vegas and also go hit with L1. Won the next race at Phoenix, and oddly enough, that's the next track , so can it happen again? (Might be tougher because the crew chief and car chief were also suspended)

    UPDATE: Tony Gibson will be the crew chief. So it's all good.

    That #4 team knows how to get it done at Phoenix anyways, so I think he'll be fine. I don't have any doubts that they won't be moving.

    Holy crap that's huge. I know Harvick is strong at Phoenix/ISM, but one mistake and that could be championship hopes gone for Harvick since Kurt is now only 3 points behind and Chase (-17 from Harvick now) can sneak in if both Harvick and Kurt gets into trouble. Childers and Cheddar Smith (his car chief) gone for the rest of the season isn't going to help Harvick's chances either.

    Also interesting to see they're not appealing. Looks like SHR is aware that they were using an altered spoiler on Harvick's car. If Harvick fails to advance to Homestead as a result of this, then I think it's safe to say that there's no one to be blamed but the team for tampering his car out of the championship.

    For the most part I would agree with you. I know it is the same track surface but I have heard that the new configuration could change the way the race is run (no more dive bombing at the link). NASCAR is going to pick the 4 car apart during inspections. IMO they have been running “cheated up” for a good part of the year and NASCAR finally figured it out

    so the #12 and #20 cars also got a L1 penalty but they only got a 20 point penalty but Harvick got 40 pts what ??

    and also good thing it passed their laser inspection right before rolling it out to the grid maybe their lasers need a penalty lol

    I have a guess that the 40 points penalty compared to 20 is because they're in the Chase, unlike the others (being Blaney and Jones).

    ouch the johnson fan inside me hurts

    Yeah, because Harvick's dealt with the spoiler not meeting requirements. The 12 had issues with the door front crush panels, while the 20 had issues with a package tray. I'd say the spoiler issue is a much bigger no-no, and NASCAR clearly thought that too.

    But can we talk about how bad the inspection process was this week? First you had the deal with Jimmie being sent to the back because of a 'miscommunication' related to inspections, and then this, which wasn't caught pre-race or post-race (assuming it was modified during the race on a pit stop). Lack of clarity from NASCAR (per the usual) doesn't help matters...

    Crazy how this one penalty that they doubled on him might cost hi the championship after he has:
    • Most Wins
    • Most Top-5's
    • Most Top-10's
    • Most Laps Led
    • Most Stage Wins
    on the season so far, but oh well.

    Thats twice they have gotten nabbed on AERO related items (first the window brace and now this)....

    What'll be interesting is IF the winning driver at Homestead (championship) fails inspection or the R&D Inspection. How will NASCAR treat that?

    I'd think that they would inspect all 4 cars from that race and whoever was the second out of the four chasers would get it, if they didn't fail tech.

    I can't even fathom the blowback NASCAR would get for a title-winning car failing inspection...

    IF that happens, and IF they don't sweep it under the rug, I would imagine that would elicit a swift change to how they handle such an occurrence.

    I knew somehow his crew would drop the ball again. Harvick year in and year our gets screwed by his crew. It makes me wonder if they just hate him that much. lol

    I also think it’s a bit of a misconception that Harvick is fine because he’s going to Phoenix. The last time he won in the fall is 2014. He’ll be there, but I don’t think he’ll win and I don’t think he’s gonna be in the Championship 4. There’s always one person that every bet on to make it and doesn’t. I think it’s Harvick this year.
