G2G, Young’s Hit With Penalties After Darlington

G2G Racing and Young’s Motorsports teams incurred penalties after the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series races at Kansas Speedway and Darlington Raceway, NASCAR announced May 18.

The infractions were all from Sections B&C and had to do with the driver’s window nets.

Young’s No. 12 and No. 20’s crew chiefs, Bradley Means and Joseph Lax, respectively, were fined $5,000 each. Also, each team and driver were deducted 25 driver and owner points. At Kansas, Nick Leitz drove the No. 20, while Spencer Boyd piloted the No. 12.

UPDATE: G2G plans to appeal the penalties, it stated on Twitter.

“Today, we were informed by NASCAR that our window nets did not fit within the rulebook,” G2G said. “We plan to appeal their decision. We truly feel both window nets were within the guidelines NASCAR has in their rulebook.

“With that being said, we appreciate everyone’s support as we continue to build our entire program.

“Again, we appreciate your support as we appeal this matter. We look forward to you all cheering us on in NASCAR’s return to the North Wilkesboro Speedway this weekend.”
