NASCAR confirmed Tuesday that it will not penalize the teams of Brad Keselowski and Joey Logano after taking the splitter from their cars before last weekend’s race at Michigan International Speedway.
NASCAR took the splitters after finding they were close to compliance in inspection.
Keselowski was not concerned before the race about the matter, telling NBCSN: “It’s not a big deal. You like to start on a worn-in splitter because the cars drag the track. When they’re worn in, they don’t drag quite as hard. After the first 30 to 40 laps, that all resets. Maybe a little (of an edge) at the start of the race but not a big deal.”
Keselowski’s team, though, was given a warning for failing inspection before the race twice. His team was among six that received warnings or will be penalized practice time this weekend at Bristol for issues at Michigan.
