NASCAR announced one penalty from the Las Vegas race weekend.

Matt Tifft‘s No. 2 Richard Childress Racing Chevrolet was docked 10 driver and 10 owner points.

Tifft’s car failed inspection four times prior to the race. As a result, car chief Cam Strader was ejected from the race.

The point penalty was assessed before the seedings for the playoff were made. Tifft is ninth in the standings. 

Tifft will also be assessed a 30-minute penalty in the first Xfinity practice session at Richmond.
