This Father’s Day weekend while the XFINITY and Truck Series race in Iowa, the Sprint Cup Series is enjoying a rare week off in the schedule And Kyle Larson in trouble again!
FOX’s Marghiee Teshineh has “FOX in the Fastlane”:
Pit row will be quiet this week, as drivers enjoy a rare break in the NASCAR Sprint Series schedule.
Kyle Busch is grateful for the time off, after suffering a couple of tough losses over the last four weeks:
(Busch) “We get to have a couple of off weeks here, try to regroup, try to change our luck somehow. I wish there was a store I could buy some, I’m certainly out.”
The next race on the schedule is Sonoma, the first of the two road courses races on the schedule, and even though Busch returns as the current defending champ:
(Busch) “Sonoma is so hard to predict, there are so many things that can happen there. It’s kind of like a Martinsville type short track road course race. You know where you can knocked out of the way pretty easy.”
For the second time in two weeks, NASCAR has punished Kyle Larson and his team after failing post race inspections. Larson’s interim crew chief was fined $25,000 dollars and the Chip Ganassi Racing team lost 15 driver points and 15 owner points for infractions stemming from last week’s race at Michigan.
