NASCAR issues 10-point penalties to JR Motorsports for Darlington race violation, while Jimmie Johnson joins NBC’s Indy 500 coverage

NASCAR has issued an L1-level penalty to the No. 1 team at JR Motorsports after last weekend’s race at Darlington. The penalty was issued for a violation of Sections 14.3.1.4 A of the NASCAR Rule Book, specifically related to Inspection Re-Certification. As a result, NASCAR issued a 10-point penalty to driver Sam Mayer and a 10-point penalty to the team. Crew chief Mardy Lindley was also suspended for the Xfinity race at Charlotte Motor Speedway on May 25.

In other news, Jimmie Johnson will be a part of NBC’s coverage of the Indy 500 and will also be involved in select NASCAR Cup races this season.

Following the Darlington race, NASCAR took four Xfinity cars to the R&D Center for further inspection. The No. 00 Ford of Stewart-Haas Racing, No. 20 Toyota of Joe Gibbs Racing and No. 21 Chevrolet of Richard Childress Racing did not have any issues during inspection. However, the No. 1 Chevrolet was found to be in violation of the Inspection Re-Certification rule, leading to the penalties mentioned earlier. Additionally, NASCAR announced penalties for two Craftsman Truck Series teams, ThorSport Racing and Rev Racing, for violations related to Crew Protective Clothing/Equipment
