Top Two K&N West Teams Penalized After Phoenix Weekend

The first- and second-place teams in last week’s season-ending Casino Arizona 100 NASCAR K-and-N Pro Series West race at Phoenix International Raceway have been penalized. During post-race inspection on November 12th, it was discovered that the cover on the oil reservoir on Todd Gilliland’s race-winning Toyota was not properly bolted shut.

Gilliland and car owner Bill McAnally were each docked thirty championship points. Crew chief Seth Smith was fined thirty-five thousand dollars, suspended for three races and placed on probation for six months.

Also during post-race inspection, a shock absorber on William Byron’s second-place Chevrolet didn’t extend six inches in the allowable time span of ninety seconds. Byron and car owner Justin Marks were each docked twelve championship points.
