DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — On Wednesday afternoon, NASCAR levied a penalty to DGR Crosley for violating the preseason testing policy.


The team was sanctioned for conducting a private test with a NASCAR K&N Pro Series East vehicle at New Smyrna Speedway. The rule limits testing at a sanctioned track on the 2019 NASCAR K&N Pro Series East schedule. This infraction resulted in a P6 level penalty.


The penalty carries a three-race NASCAR K&N Pro Series East suspension for car owner David Gilliland and driver Ty Gibbs. Car chief Chad Walters was suspended indefinitely.


Gilliland, Gibbs and Walters were also fined $5,000 apiece, and both owner and driver were docked 100 championship points.




The 2019 K&N Pro Series East season kicks off at New Smyrna Speedway on Sunday, February 10 for the New Smyrna 175. DGR Crosley won the K&N East championship last season with Tyler Ankrum.
