Kevin Harvick fails inspection, loses guaranteed spot in NASCAR Championship 4

Kevin Harvick wins Kevin Harvick’s race-winning car fails inspection; had illegal spoiler during inspection
Cassandra Castillo | 09 November, 2018, 12:27

The spoilers, Miller said, are purchased from a single source supplier and positioned on the auto.

Maybe this is why Kevin Harvick's No. 4 Ford was so strong in winning the NASCAR Monster Energy Cup AAA 500 at Texas Motor Speedway on Sunday. "We will try to do that in pre-inspection, and then I think we have enough eyes to know if a spoiler comes off a vehicle, then we go on high alert on that one".

"We're actually looking at a lot of different things in the offseason in regards to the deterrence model - we've heard the fans kind of call out for, 'Why don't you disqualify the offending car?' and that's actually a topic of discussion along with many other things related to the deterrence model", said Miller.

Spoilers will be checked at Phoenix this weekend, Miller said, and NASCAR will likely ramp up its penalties next year.

"This met the shape, and it met the height, and we don't check at track the offset of the spoiler because it's supposed to be a standard part that bolts to a standard deck lid", Miller said. "It's getting borderline ridiculous". Both were suspended for two races. Childers also was fined $75,000.

The impact of the penalty stretches behind Stewart-Haas Racing as well.

Harvick was docked 40 points for the violation, and his win at Texas no longer automatically advances him to the Round of 8. Should there be a tie for the final transfer spot, Harvick would not be eligible to use the Texas victory in the tiebreaking procedure.

Greg Zipadelli, vice president of competition at SHR, said the team will not appeal the penalties.

Zipadelli said Tony Gibson will come out of retirement to work as interim crew chief.

Stewart-Haas Racing announced early Wednesday that the team would not appeal the penalty. "Instead, we will direct our immediate focus to this weekend's event in Phoenix and control our destiny on the race track". Texas race victor Kevin Harvick lost his automatic championship berth from the victory because the spoiler on his Ford was out of compliance. Now, three spots in the finale will be up for grabs Sunday in Phoenix.

Harvick enters this week's race at Phoenix, the last before Miami, fourth among the eight playoff racers. He pulled it off and is a nine-time victor at Phoenix, including earlier this year. However, upon further inspection, NASCAR ruled the win illegitimate and stripped Harvick of the win and the automatic playoff advancement that comes with it. Johnson was sent to the back of the field because NASCAR believed his vehicle failed inspection three times, but he had failed only twice.
