JRM wins appeal to overturn Gragson’s DQ

Sports

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — An appeals officer ruled Wednesday that JR Motorsports did not violate any rules when NASCAR disqualified Noah Gragson at Darlington Raceway.

The decision restored the fourth-place finish Gragson earned Saturday in the Xfinity Series race and he can collect the $100,000 Dash 4 Cash bonus he’d won.

NASCAR said Gragson’s car failed post-race inspection for violating a rule regarding how the suspension is mounted. The rule states “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.”

JRM appealed the penalty and Roger Werner, the final appeal officer, did not provide a reason for reversing NASCAR’s call.

NASCAR cannot appeal Werner’s decision.
