Kevin Harvick Issued NASCAR Penalty

NASCAR issues a 40 point penalty to Kevin Harvick after his race winning car was found to have an illegal spoiler during technical inspection at the NASCAR Research & Development center. The penalty revokes Harvick’s automatic berth into the championship race at Homestead, & his crew chief Rodney Childers will serve a two race penalty. It is reported that Stewart-Haas Racing will not appeal the penalty, & that Tony Gibson will take over as interim crew chief. Harvick now sits in 4th place, three points ahead of Kurt Busch.


Ryan Newman to Drive for Roush Fenway Racing in 2019

Roush Fenway Racing confirmed that Ryan Newman would take over the #6 Ford in 2019, replacing both Trevor Bayne and Matt Kenseth who have shared that seat this season. At the press conference announcing his signing with RFR, Newman spoke about Kenseth recruiting him for Roush after Kenseth made his own decision to not continue racing next season for family reasons. Owner Jack Roush previously confirmed Bayne would not return to the team in 2019.
