JR Motorsports to appeal Gragson’s Darlington penalty

JR Motorsports will appeal the penalty that took away Noah Gragson’s fourth place finish, and ultimately the $100,000 Dash 4 Cash bonus, at Darlington Raceway on Saturday.

NASCAR leveled the team with a penalty after the car failed post-race inspection.

Gragson’s car was said to be in violation of Rule 20.14.c in the Xfinity Series Rule Book.

The rule states: “All suspension mounts and mounting hardware must not allow movement or realignment of any suspension and/or drivetrain component beyond normal rotation or suspension and/or drivetrain travel.”

An appeal of the penalty is expected to be heard within the week.

With the penalty to Gragson, AJ Allmendinger was awarded the $100,000 Dash 4 Cash bonus. Allmendinger finished 12th in the race.

The four drivers who are now eligible for the Dash 4 Cash at Dover are Darlington race winner Justin Allgaier, Josh Berry, AJ Allmendinger and Brandon Jones.
