  Cheaters beware
NASCAR competition officials issued an updated deterrence system Thursday for its three national series, shifting toward an officiating process that penalizes pre-race infractions within a given race weekend. The updated system is months in the making, with the sanctioning body and teams working concurrently on the new procedures. The move was one of several fundamental changes made to the penalty structure ahead of on-track activity this week at Daytona International Speedway.

Blaney Looks to Give Wood Brothers First Win Since 2011

Perhaps my fellow racers will find the following thoughts from that experience helpful.
