Dale Earnhardtr Jr.’s talented young driver Sam Mayer representing JR Motorsports, faced a setback during last weekend’s events at Darlington Raceway. After the Crown Royal Purple Bag Project 200, Mayer’s No. 1 JR Motorsports Chevrolet was issued an L1-level penalty for violating Sections 14.3.1.4 A: Inspection Re-Certification in the NASCAR Rule Book. But what exactly led to this penalty?

It was discovered that Mayer’s team made a change to the car that would have necessitated it to go through the recertification process. In other words, they modified the vehicle in a way that required re-inspection but failed to follow the proper procedures. As a result, NASCAR took action.

Recently, Bob Pockrass further explained the penalty as he wrote on X, “Sam Mayer has been docked 10 points and crew chief Mardy Lindley suspended for one race and fined $10K for violating rule that chassis that has had major repair or its certification time had expired must be re-certified.”
