NASCAR competition officials plan to introduce a stricter inspection process in the Xfinity Series after a recent flurry of pre-race failures.
Officials indicated this week that tougher penalties will be in place starting with the Sept. 15 event at Bristol Motor Speedway, which will open the seven-race Xfinity Series Playoffs.
Starting at Bristol, officials plan to penalize teams that fail pre-race inspection two times by ejecting a crew member. Previously, the threshold for an ejection was three inspection failures.
