2015 pit road penalties: Who sped the most to crew infractions

1 Comment

Who was caught speeding on pit road the most this season? Whose pit crew jumped over the wall too soon the most? Who drove through three or more pit boxes most often?

With the season complete, the numbers can be tallied. With NASCAR’s new camera monitoring system of pit stops, pit road infractions – such as driving through three or more pit boxes, crew members over the wall too soon and teams not in control of the outside tire – were expected to be scrutinized more closely this season.

Here’s a look at some key penalties this season and who were the leaders in those categories.
