It’s vintage NASCAR to try and gain a competitive edge. So following throwback weekend, it was no surprise to find a couple of teams receiving warnings from NASCAR.
Denny Hamlin was posted for failing pre-race tech four times, his car finally allowed on the grid following the fifth pass through inspection. He finished third after leading 57 laps in the Bojangles Southern 500.
The warning was his second such since NASCAR revamped the warning system a few weeks ago. If Hamlin receives two more warnings, his team will receive last pick in pit stall selections.
Timmy Hill’s No. 62 for Premium Motorsports also received a written warning on Wednesday, though the team failed to qualify for the race on Sunday. Hill will return to the No. 98 at Richmond, with Reed Sorenson driving the No. 62.
