SPARTA, Ky. – Austin Dillon, the dominating winner of NASCAR’s Nationwide Series race at Kentucky Speedway has failed post-race inspection. Dillon’s No. 3 car was measured as too low in the rear end, a measurement announced at 11:15 p.m., long after fans had left the track.
Because of the seriousness of the infraction, NASCAR has confirmed penalties and a likely points deduction will be forthcoming for the No. 3 team early this week. Dillon, whose win gave him the championship lead will almost assuredly hand that back to teammate Elliott Sadler at RCR after the consequences are announced.
