Tony Stewart says that Stewart-Haas Racing will not appeal the penalty to Kevin Harvick’s team from last weekend’s Cup race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
“How many appeals have you seen overturned?’’ Stewart said after Harvick won Sunday at ISM Raceway for his third consecutive Cup win.
The team had to decide by Monday if to appeal the L1 penalties. NASCAR penalized the team for a failed window brace and side skirts being aluminum instead of steel.
NASCAR docked Harvick all seven playoff points he earned at Las Vegas for his victory and two stage wins, along with 20 driver points. NASCAR also fined crew chief Rodney Childers $50,000, suspended the team’s car chief two races and docked the team 20 owner points.
