Clint Bowyer Penalty Upheld In Appeal

A three-member appeals panel upheld P4-grade penalties issued to Michael Waltrip Racing's No. 15 Toyota team Wednesday, severely hampering driver Clint Bowyer's hopes of advancing from the first round of the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup playoffs.

The National Motorsports Appeals Panel -- which heard the team's appeal at the NASCAR Research & Development Center in Concord, North Carolina -- ruled that the Waltrip-owned organization violated the rules set forth in the penalty notice and the panel affirms and upholds the original penalty assessed by NASCAR.

On Sept. 23, NASCAR handed down punishment for an illegally mounted track bar and suspension infractions as part of pre-race technical violations after the postseason-opening race Sept. 20 at Chicagoland Speedway, stripping Bowyer of 25 points in the drivers' championship standings, suspending crew chief Billy Scott for three races and fining the team $75,000. The penalties were issued at the P4 level of discipline in the NASCAR deterrence system, which went into effect in the 2014 season.The three members on the National Motorsports Appeals Panel chosen to hear Wednesday's appeal were Mr. Paul Brooks, Mr. Bill Lester and Mr. Bill Mullis.(NASCAR.com)

Rhino Liners 350 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway Preview

The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series comes to Sin City to Gamble on the 1.5 Mile Las Vegas Motor Speedway. The series began racing in Las Vegas in 1996. The Inaugural race winner was Jack Sprague. Since that year the trucks have returned to Las Vegas for one of their only standalone events for the last 18 years with the exception of 2000. Erik Jones is the defending race winner. 3 of the past winners of this race are entered in this race for Saturday Night (Erik Jones, Timothy Peters, and Johnny Sauter). Below are some of the Story Lines Going into Saturday Nights Race!

Three Championship Contenders Can't Gamble This Weekend

Erik Jones, Matt Crafton, and Tyler Reddick can't afford to Gamble in Las Vegas this weekend but they can if they want. Could Tyler Reddick face a little Beginners Luck? Can Matt Crafton hit the Jackpot for the 3rd Year In A Row? Will Erik Jones ace another Las Vegas win and move him closer to the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Championship? Don't Forget Johnny Sauter could throw his cards on the table and go ALL or NOTHING leaving Sin City!

Christopher Bell Returns To The 54 

Remember this Guy and Bobby Pierces' battle at Eldora? Well half of the Equation is back for more. Christopher Bell will be back in the #54 for Kyle Busch Motorsports for the first time since Eldora! Could Christopher Bell make a deposit in Kyle Buschs' check book and maybe land himself a full time Ride with KBM in 2016? Some are looking at 2015 but others are trying to finalize their 2016 plans and I'm sure Christopher Bell would like to take over Erik Jones number 4 in 2016! Make It Happen Kyle!

Talk About Returns.......

 Yeah Remember Travis Pastrana? Well Guess what he's BACK! He will be piloting the #31 Gunbroker.com Chevrolet for Bob Newberry! Las Vegas, NASCAR, and Travis Pastrana how could this get any better. We the viewers have definitely hit the Jackpot with This one! Most of Pastrana's NASCAR experience came in 2013 in his lone full season in what is now the Xfinity Series, driving the #60 Ford for Roush Fenway Racing. Pastrana claimed one Coors Light Pole Award at Talladega in May of 2013, but wound up 14th in the final standings after crashing out of six of the campaign's 33 races. We can't wait to see Travis return!

A Streak On The Line For Former Las Vegas Victor

Timothy Peters won here in 2013 and as of late has been red hot on track! The Streak that is on the line is the winning streak. Timothy has won in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series at least once every year since 2009. Yes Talladega is coming and we all know those Red Horse Racing Toyotas are always a threat at Talladega but maybe Timothy could return to victory lane in Las Vegas! He's had 2 top 5 finishes in a row and maybe he can make it 3 in a row this weekend at Las Vegas!

Clint Bowyer and MWR Appeal to be Heard Today

NASCAR's Appeal Panel will hear the appeal from Michael Waltrip Racing today. This could be the final nail in the coffin for Michael Waltrip Racing as they will be ceasing operations at the end of the 2015 season. Below is the penalty MWR will be appealing and MWR seems very confident that they will win this appeal.


  • The #15 team has been penalized for an infraction that occurred on opening day inspection Sept.18.
