Two NASCAR teams to lose practice time from written warnings
By:

Two NASCAR teams will lose practice time as a result of warnings received at Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway last weekend.

Jimmie Johnson, Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet
Ty Dillon, Richard Childress Racing Chevrolet
Brian Scott, Richard Petty Motorsports Ford

In the Sprint Cup Series, six-time Cup champion Jimmie Johnson will lose 15 minutes of practice time this weekend at Kansas Speedway after receiving a written warning for his No. 48 Chevrolet failed pre-race template inspection three times prior to Sunday’s GEICO 500.

In the Xfinity Series, series regular Ty Dillon will lose 15 minutes of practice time at the next race at Dover, Del., after his No. 3 Chevrolet failed the Laser Inspection System (LIS) three times prior to last Saturday’s race.

Also on the Xfinity series side, the teams of Jeb Burton, Ross Chastain, Derrike Cope, Bobby Gerhart, Garrett Smithley and Mat Tifft received warnings for twice failing the LIS in pre-race inspection.

On the Cup side, the team of Brian Scott received a written warning pre-race for failing LIS twice and Cole Whitt’s team received a written warning for failing template inspection twice prior to the race.
