It seems the Kurt Busch racing team forgot to turn in an extra set of tires giving them 7 sets which is 1 set over the 6 set policy for practice and qualifying.
His penalty? His No 2 Dodge was held up on pit road by a NASCAR official for 15 minutes while the other cars raced by. Despite his wrongdoing, he will be well-received in the Chase at the Sprint Cup championship opener at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
I’m sure he will make sure he has the required 8 sets for Sunday’s race.
