Gragson’s Darlington penalty overturned, wins $100,000 prize

The penalty for the No. 9 JR Motorsports car driven by Noah Gragson has been overturned, restoring his forth place finish and a $100,000 Dash 4 Cash prize.

On Wednesday the National Motorsports Final Appears Offier overturned the penalty which stemmed from a NASCAR saying the team had violated Rule 20.14.c in the NASCAR Rule Book, which reads:

“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.”

Briefly the $100,000 prize had been awarded to AJ Allmendinger, but now it is Gragson who gets the money and will be among four drivers looking to win $100,000 at Dover International Speedway on Saturday. He will be joined by Justin Allgaier, Josh Berry and Brandon Jones.

Thus far Gragson has won all three Dash 4 Cash prizes this season (Martinsville, Talladega and Darlington).

“Everyone at JR Motorsports strives to bring four fast and competitive race cars to the track each and every week and we are happy to see that the ruling was overturned,” JR Motorsports general manager Kelley Earnhardt Miller said in a statement.
