Ryan Blaney’s DQ tossed out by NASCAR, points restored

Ryan Blaney’s disqualification from the South Point 400 has been rescinded.

Blaney originally finished sixth at Las Vegas Motor Speedway before NASCAR gave him a penalty for an issue with the shock.

On Monday NASCAR announced they had rescinded the penalty after an issue was discovered with the damper template used for inspections at Las Vegas. NASCAR released a statement which read “NASCAR then conducted a detailed investigation and has restored the No. 12’s stage and race finishing positions from Sunday. NASCAR has taken internal steps to remedy this issue moving forward.”

Blaney will regain his sixth place finish in the race and all points associated with it as well as the eight stage points from the race.

Team Penske released a statement after the news broke.

“We are pleased with the decision by NASCAR to rescind the post-race disqualification to the No. 12 car following Sunday’s race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway,” Team Penske’s statement read. “NASCAR has shown a tremendous amount of integrity throughout the process which has led to this conclusion. We are proud of the effort and the results by the No. 12 team during the 2023 season. We look forward to continuing the pursuit of the NASCAR Cup Series Championship.”
