2 Comments

In this 13-minute segment, the NASCAR America crew gives their reaction following Martin Truex Jr.‘s win and failed laser inspection. Nate Ryan spoke with Truex Jr. about his team’s response to the penalty.

Analyst Steve Letarte also says that he would like to see all 16 Chase for the Sprint Cup drivers be subjected to post-race laser inspection.

“I do believe, with what’s on the line, if you’re going to test 10 cars, the effort to test six more cars seems reasonable,” Letarte said. “Perhaps I would make an exception for someone in an accident, multiple laps down … But anybody running at the end of the race, competing on the track for positions and points, I would like to see go across the laser.”

The NASCAR America crew also touches on what NASCAR needs to address for post-race inspection by the season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
