Austin Dillon penalized for Talladega deck lid issue

NASCAR has issued an L1 penalty to Austin Dillon and the No. 3 Richard Childress Racing Chevrolet after Talladega Superspeedway.

Pole Winner Pole Winner Austin Dillon, Richard Childress Racing, Chevrolet Camaro Realtree
 Alex Bowman, Hendrick Motorsports, Chevrolet Camaro Nationwide Austin Dillon, Richard Childress Racing, Chevrolet Camaro Dow
 Kurt Busch, Chip Ganassi Racing, Chevrolet Camaro Monster Energy, center 9, Jimmie Johnson, Hendrick Motorsports, Chevrolet Camaro Ally and Austin Dillon, Richard Childress Racing, Chevrolet Camaro Dow

NASCAR officials confiscated the rear deck lid of Dillon's car Friday at Talladega and took it back to their research and development center in Concord, N.C. for closer inspection.

In a penalty report issued Tuesday, NASCAR said the team violated Sections 20.4 Body; 20.4.11 Deck Lid; 20.20 of the rule book. "Deck lid must be used as supplied from the manufacturer. Body Filler added to deck lid," it read.

The result is a $25,000 fine for crew chief Danny Stockman Jr. and a one-race suspension for car chief Gregory Ebert. Dillon and team have also been docked ten driver and owner points.

Dillon won the pole for the race and ultimately finished 14th.

Lastly, NASCAR Gander Outdoor Truck Series driver Austin Wayne Self has successfully completed NASCAR's Road to Recovery Program and his indefinite suspension has been lifted.
