A post-race inspection after Saturday’s NASCAR Nationwide Series race at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, California found that the No. 39 team committed a rules violation.
NASCAR officials found that Ryan Sieg’s car exceeded the maximum rear body height requirement during post-race inspection (Section 20A-12.8.1C). The team was also found to have violated Section 12-1: actions detrimental to stock car racing.
This has resulted in a $10,000 fine imposed on Crew Chief Kevin Starland and he has been placed on NASCAR probation until Dec. 31. Car Chief Timothy Brown has also been placed on NASCAR probation until Dec. 31.
