Playoff points penalized
Placeholder Image
Prior to last Sunday’s Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Race in New Hampshire, a couple of penalties were handed out to playoff drivers that affected their points or their entry into the race. Chase Elliott’s second-place finish at Chicagoland was ruled encumbered because of a modification of components that affected the aerodynamic properties of the vehicle. As a result, Elliott lost the playoff point for winning Stage 2, and was also docked 15 driver points.Joey Logano and his team failed pre-qualifying inspections four times.
