NASCAR panel reduces JGR penalties
“This has been a tough, tough week for everyone,” he said. “Certainly no one wanted this to happen, and we’re committed to making sure it never happens in the future. I want to emphasize that after going through this process we have great for our sport, and in particular, NASCAR. All of us at Joe Gibbs Racing are committed to being good partners and we want to race with NASCAR forever. We’re going to work extremely hard with TRD to make sure this never happens again and right now we just want to get back to racing.”
TRD officials immediately accepted responsibility for the bad part, claiming it came from the manufacturer underweight with accompanying paperwork that clearly stated its weight. It was missed in the TRD chain of command and installed in an engine that was shipped from California to JGR’s shop in North Carolina, where it was installed in the car Kenseth raced at Kansas.
After NASCAR discovered it during a thorough inspection following the win at its Research & Development Center in Concord, Toyota went through all of its vendor paperwork and pulled three of Clint Bowyer’s engines because three connecting rods were too close for comfort.
“We have really addressed that. Heavily,” Gibbs said. “I think this is probably going to change several things the way Toyota was doing them. I think this was good for them for the future. It was a heavy emphasis for them. They accepted this as being something that failed in the system and they are committed to fixing the system. You can’t have this.”
