Noah Gragson Disqualified From NASCAR Xfinity Series Race At Darlington Racewayby Hunter Thomas May 8, 2021 0 comments
DARLINGTON, S.C. – Following Saturday’s Steakhouse Elite 200 at Darlington Raceway, JR Motorsports driver, Noah Gragson was disqualified after the No. 9 car failed post-race technical inspection.
The rule that the No. 9 team violated was Section 20.14.c of the NASCAR Rule Book which says, “All suspension mounts and mounting hardware must not allow movement or realignment of any suspension and/or drivetrain component beyond normal rotation or suspension and/or drivetrain travel.”
Gragson had originally led a race high of 40 laps and finished fourth. As a result, the top-five finishing order now includes Justin Allgaier, Josh Berry, Brandon Jones, AJ Allmendering and Jeremy Clements.
Gragson also had won his third consecutive $100,000 Dash 4 Cash bonus, but it was stripped and awarded to Kaulig Racing’s AJ Allmendinger. He will also not be eligible to compete for next weekend’s Dash 4 Cash at Dover International Speedway either.
