Tony Stewart Has Paid Nearly $600,000 In NASCAR Fines



Tony Stewart Has Paid Nearly $600000

Smoke lost it the last time Stewart Haas Racing, the NASCAR team Tony Stewart shares ownership with, was given a penalty. Soon after, the team was hit with new sanctions, but this time they were levied on its Xfinity Series squad.

This time, the car with the license plate #00 that was being driven by Cole Custer had been stopped. After the race at Michigan Raceway, NASCAR had already revealed that they had received an L1 level penalty. Earlier, NASCAR had taken Custer’s car’s front spitter away.

After the investigation, they claimed that the team had broken sections 14.4.3 C & H of the Xfinity Series Rule Book. The front spitter was evidently not to be modified “except as specified” and was to be used as supplied by the manufacturer, according to the rule.

How much money has Tony Stewart lost as a result of the sanctions since last year?

The majority of point reductions and fines have previously fallen on SHR. Their Cup team received a severe punishment for using fake parts just a few months ago. The declaration was made at Charlotte Motor Speedway following the competition. Chase Briscoe was penalized $250,000 and deducted 120 regular-season points.

Additionally, NASCAR docked Briscoe 25 playoff points. The #4 SHR squad received a $100,000 fine, 100 points, and a $200,000 fine all within a week last year as well.

In the present, the team has been penalized with a $25,000 fine and a loss of 20 regular-season points for the violation. The financial strain of having their teams continually under fire from NASCAR has therefore accrued to quite considerable unneeded expense when taking into account both cases.

Additionally, having a history of financial fines won’t assist their cause because the team would want to spend their budget on improving performance. After a second penalty, NASCAR fans are baffled by Tony Stewart’s team’s luck.

Fans across the NASCAR fanbase took note of the terrible situation SHR had once again found themselves in and spared no quarter after the revelation of their Xfinity Series team receiving a punishment for cheating.

Thankfully, Custer’s standings won’t be impacted by the points reduction. It won’t even damage their owner’s reputation. Custer will only lose ground to John Hunter Nemechek in the standings for the regular season while holding onto fourth position in the playoff rankings.
