The High Cost of Cheating in NASCAR Racing

Team Penske’s Joey Logano was fined $10,000 for using webbed gloves to restrict air and reduce drag during qualifying in Atlanta, highlighting the innovation and impact of such creative solutions in stock car racing. In March 2023, NASCAR penalized five Cup Series teams, with Hendrick Motorsports and Kaulig Racing facing significant fines for altering single-source parts. The biggest single fine in NASCAR history was against Stewart-Haas Racing’s Chase Briscoe, making it one of the largest penalties in NASCAR history. Penalties for Next Gen transgressions, including disqualifications of cars post-race, reinforce the importance of strict compliance in stock car racing.
