Tony Stewart has been hit with a six point penalty for a disconnected cooling hose during his qualifying lap for last Saturday’s NASCAR race at Daytona. Stewart was required to start 42nd for Saturday’s race but rallied back to win the event.
The penalty should be mute to Stewart who seems to have a firm grasp on making the race for the chase. Stewart has three wins and barring a major upset will make NASCAR’s post season.
Stewart is a three time Sprint Cup series champion.
