Taylor Gray Penalized for Cell Phone Video During ARCA Daytona Test

Taylor Gray has been fined $1,000 and placed on probation for the remainder of the 2021 season, ARCA officials announced Tuesday (Jan. 19). Gray received these penalties following his recording of himself driving via cell phone during the ARCA Menards Series preseason test at Daytona International Speedway.

The David Gilliland Racing driver was found to be in violation of the rulebook of Section 20C – 6.7, which references the restriction of onboard devices, including cell phones.

Gray, his team manager and crew chief met with ARCA officials following the incident on Friday (Jan. 15).

The 15-year-old Gray is ineligible to compete in the ARCA season opener at Daytona, but he is expected to compete once again with DGR for both the ARCA Sioux Chief Showdown and ARCA Menards Series East championships.

Gray won the penultimate ARCA Menards Series West race at Kern County Raceway Park last season. He finished eighth, 11th and 12th in the East, West and main series championship standings, respectively. In total, he amassed one win, 13 top fives and 20 top 10s in his 22 combined starts across all three ARCA series.
