Former Harvick jackman suspended for violating substance abuse policy
NASCAR issued a short list of penalties from Watkins Glen this week.
Michael Casto, the jackman for the No. 4 Stewart-Haas Racing team was suspended indefinitely under NASCAR’s substance abuse penalty (Behavioral SAP, Sections12.1;19). Casto, 43, is from Proctor, W.V.
Casto returned to action in March at Phoenix International Raceway after he was sidelined for off-season shoulder surgery and knee surgery. Harvick’s only win came in the Phoenix race.
He left the organization not too long ago and joined the No. 38 Front Row Motorsports team. His replacement will be Ernie Pierce. Stan Doolittle replaced Casto on the No. 4 Stewart-Haas Racing team.
The No. 21 Wood Brothers crew was cited for failing the LIS twice in both pre-race and pre-qualifying inspections and received written warnings. This was the fourth warning for Ryan Blaney’s team.
The No. 42 Chip Ganassi Racing team failed the template inspection in pre-qualifying twice and received a written warning. For Kyle Larson’s team, it was a first offense.
