4 NASCAR Truck teams penalized for safety violations

NASCAR handed penalties to four Craftsman Truck Series teams Thursday for window net safety violations.

The sanctioning body penalized Young’s Motorsports’ No. 12 and No. 20 teams and G2G Racing’s No. 46 and No. 47 teams. They fined each crew chief $5,000 and docked each team 25 points.

NASCAR also docked Young’s Motorsports drivers Nick Leitz and Spencer Boyd 25 points each. Their violation occurred May 6 at Kansas, while G2G’s violation occurred May 12 at Darlington.

NASCAR penalized them on rulebook sections B&C, specifying:

  • B. The driver’s window net must meet the SFI 27.1 specification and display a valid SFI 27.1 label.
  • C. Window nets must not be used beyond two years from the DOM.

Young’s Motorsports plan to appeal the penalties.

G2G Racing issued the following statement after NASCAR issued the penalties:

“Today, NASCAR informed us that our window nets did not fit within the rule book. We plan to appeal their decision. We truly feel both window nets were within the guidelines NASCAR has in their rulebook.

With that being said, we appreciate everyone’s support as we continue to build our entire program.

Again, we appreciate your support as we appeal this matter. We look forward to you all cheering us on in NASCAR’s return to the North Wilkesboro Speedway this weekend.”
