Ryan Newman was fined heavily for an infraction that occurred during NASCAR’s trip to Homestead-Miami earlier in October.
The veteran drove the No. 51 Ford for Rick Ware Racing during the event and came home in 26th place at the end of the weekend. However, Newman was fined for not wearing a sock while qualifying for the race.
He attempted to appeal the $10,000 fine, and a decision was made: Newman’s offense and punishment were upheld.
“Appeals committee upholds $10,000 fine for Ryan Newman for not wearing a sock during practice/qualifying at Homestead,” Pockrass published on X, formerly known as Twitter.
Additionally, the appeals panel explained its reasoning, as there is no fixed fine for Newman’s specific offense.
“With no specific fine for the violation, we listened to NASCAR’s description of how they arrived at the $10,000 penalty. However, the panel suggests that NASCAR establish a policy that all safety violations have a published range. the panel explained, via Pockrass.
Ultimately, it’s in Ryan Newman’s best interest to use a sock every time he gets in the car, both financially and for his safety. We’re willing to bet at least $10,000 that he won’t make this mistake again.
Corey Heim and Tricon Garage will not appeal Truck Series championship fine and penalty
After today’s deadline, Corey Heim and Tricon Garage will not appeal the penalty and fine he received from NASCAR. As a result of his retaliation against Carson Hocevar at the end of the Craftsman Truck Series championship race, Heim had 25 driver points taken away and the team was fined $12,500.
The actions of Corey Heim and Carson Hocevar 10 days ago sparked something in the NASCAR world. At the beginning of the season, since the Bushc Light Clash, aggression was really a topic. A hot topic at that.
“Respect” and what it means, who gives it and who gets it – all of that was up in the air and up for discussion. These two young drivers brought all of that back to the forefront of the conversation.
Bob Pockrass of Fox Sports reported that Corey Heim and his team did not appeal the decision. 5:00 p.m. EST was the deadline and it has passed.
Corey Heim and Carson Hocevar were fighting for the championship. However, neither of them walked away victorious as they let poor decisions get in their way. It would have been a really fun race to see the two go head to head. However, we didn’t get that.
Instead, Ben Rhodes limped to the championship. And kudos to him, he could have given it up or let the multiple late restarts end his night – he didn’t. Rhodes did what he had to do and won that championship through attrition.
Still, it’s a shame that Corey Heim and his reprisals took the championship from Grant Enfinger. It was as if several drivers had the trophy in their sights and everyone had snatched it.
