Kevin Harvick’s race-winning auto fails inspection; had illegal spoiler during inspection

  • Kevin Harvick’s win Sunday at Texas no longer counts for automatic qualification into the championship raceMore

"It's a shame that we have to, but yeah, we plan on doing that", Miller said.

"We're actually looking at a lot of different things in the offseason in regards to the deterrence model - we've heard the fans kind of call out for, 'Why don't you disqualify the offending car?' and that's actually a topic of discussion along with many other things related to the deterrence model", said Miller.

Miller said NASCAR officials at ISM Raceway in Phoenix this weekend will further scrutinize all spoilers before cars go on track as a response to the penalty.

"Yeah, we'll have to take them off and match them up against the part that it's supposed to be", Miller said. "I think we're getting into borderline ridiculous territory", he said.

The whopping penalty negated the automatic berth Harvick earned into NASCAR's version of a final four. Those penalties also include the suspensions of crew chief Rodney Childers and vehicle chief Robert "Cheddar" Smith for the remaining two races of the 2018 season and a $75,000 fine for Childers. Both were suspended for two races.

"Certainly points, the deterrence model, fines, suspensions".

Harvick lost 40 points, and Stewart-Haas Racing lost 40 owner points.

With his normal caddie already holding a scheduling conflict, Kuchar instead hired a local caddie to fill the void. Hickok toiled on the Mackenzie Tour in Canada, then the Web.com Tour before finally making it to the big leagues.

Harvick was also docked 40 points, making his work to advance even tougher if he doesn't win the only remaining race of the round at Phoenix. Should there be a tie for the final transfer spot, Harvick would not be eligible to use the Texas victory in the tiebreaking procedure. However, NASCAR believes the No. 4 team actually manufactured its own spoiler and passed it off as the standard one - except the illegal spoiler was offset to the right in relation to the center of the vehicle, which was "definitely (an) aerodynamic performance (advantage)", Miller said.

"We work tirelessly across every inch of our race cars to create speed, " Zipadelli said.

Greg Zipadellil, SHR's vice president of communications, said the team will not appeal the penalty. Harvick's win at Texas no longer automatically qualifies the team for the Championship 4 in Miami. Now, three spots in the finale will be up for grabs Sunday in Phoenix. He pulled it off and is a nine-time victor at Phoenix, including earlier this year.

Joey Logano is now the only driver locked into Homestead with "The Big Three" of Harvick, Kyle Busch and Martin Truex Jr. now in on merit.

- NASCAR will perform an engine teardown and enhanced post-race inspection immediately after the Homestead race (as it has done in the past) rather than wait until midweek to scrutinize the championship vehicle for any amusing business. Johnson was sent to the back of the field because NASCAR believed his auto failed inspection three times, but he had failed only twice. Cars will not be taken to the R&D Center after that race.

As for next year, changes could be coming to the penalties for various inspection infractions. All three were expected to race for the championship, and none is qualified for Homestead yet with one race remaining. "We will now return our focus to Phoenix, and the battle for a championship".

Also Wednesday, NASCAR penalized the teams of Ryan Blaney and Erik Jones, who already have been eliminated from the playoffs.
