Clint Bowyer had a weekend to forget at New Hampshire. Even though he was back in North Carolina Wednesday, bad news from the Granite State kept pouring in.
Bowyer, who hit Jeff Gordon during practice in the garage area following a miscommunication between Gordon and a crew member, went a lap down early in the 5-hour Energy 301 before ultimately finishing 34th. His team was then cited Wednesday for failing pre-qualifying inspection twice.
If any of these teams receive similar citations this weekend at Indianapolis, they will be subject to a P1 penalty. This consequence will result in either a deduction of practice or qualifying time, last choice in pit selection, or delay in inspection order, among other options for punishment.
