That’s the message sent to the teams today from NASCAR.
It appears if you mess with anything on the Car of Tomorrow NASCAR will fine you $100,000.00, dock 100 points from your driver, dock 100 points from the Team Owner of the car involved and suspend your crew chief for at least 6 races and put them on probation for a long period of time. That is the punishment handed down to the 24 and 48 teams after arriving at Sonoma on the weekend with modified front fenders on their cars that NASCAR did not like.
NASCAR has said they are serious, and it looks like they are. The only question on anyones minds is what happens if a serious breach is detected ? Maybe we will see the first life bans handed down, or maybe they will build up to that by sitting someone out for the remainder of a season, or maybe they will build up to that one by just stripping someone of all their points for a season.
However you look at it NASCAR is serious and the teams had better take notice or the garages will be empty.
