NASCAR to disqualify race winners who fail technical inspections

"We can not allow inspection and penalties to continue to be a prolonged stroyline". At the superspeedways, teams participated in qualifying one vehicle at a time with just a single timed lap per round.

"When you leave the race track on Sunday night, you'll know who the race victor is from our perspective". If the winning auto has any major infraction it will immediately be disqualified and dropped to last in the field.

The last driver believed to have been stripped outright of a national series victory was Dale Jarrett following a 1995 race in NASCAR's second-tier series at MI. NASCAR said it will now eject team members, dock practice time and, in an enhanced penalty, bar a auto from trying to qualify for the race if it fails three times.

The driver - if they failed post-race inspection as the victor -will no longer be credited the victor.

O'Donnell said Kennedy will take ownership of new projects and expand his reach globally to include NASCAR's racing series in Canada, Mexico and Europe. Then, in the postseason, Kevin Harvick failed for an illegal spoiler following his win at Texas Motor Speedway.

The team will also lose all benefits that come with a win, such as playoff eligibility or advancement in the playoffs should an inspection failure occur in the post-season.

Teammates admit that they're enjoying being a part of a historic run, but Harden often steers the discussion back to winning. Wilt Chamberlain has the two longest 30-point streaks in the National Basketball Association at 31 games and 65 games.

For races conducted at short and intermediate tracks, round one will be 10 minutes long, equaling the length of the second round and shortened by five minutes. Drivers with more than five years of full-time Cup Series experience are eligible for a maximum of seven Xfinity Series starts and five Truck Series starts.

Daytona International Speedway and Talladega Superspeedway, being superspeedways that use their own format of two-round single-lap qualifying, will stay the same. Not only will this happen during the final stage, but it will also impact the first two stages, as well. "We are proud to partner with the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards to create the ultimate Saturday night stock auto doubleheader". His new responsibilities will include initiatives aimed at growing the sport, including managing NASCAR's growth on the worldwide scene.

"I think you will see a new NASCAR in terms of what you may see on the track and what you may see under the hood", O'Donnell said.

Ben Kennedy, the great-grandson of NASCAR founder Bill France Sr., will expand his leadership in the family business in 2019, becoming the managing director of racing operations and worldwide development.

The Truck Series will have a three-race program with an opportunity to win up to $500,000 in bonus money. Kennedy spent last season as managing director of the Truck Series. The program will run at consecutive races at Texas Motor Speedway, Iowa Speedway and Gateway Motorsports Park in July. A round sweep will notch $500,000.
