Kevin Harvick and Stewart-Haas Racing were given hefty fines for alleged modifications in Harvick’s No. 4 car.

More specifically, they were docked 100 points each, and crew chief Rodney Childers ended up with a four-race suspension along with a $100,000 fine. Childers responded to the news as “shocking” in a reply to NASCAR’s post regarding the fine.

Since Harvick is an outspoken figure regarding safety issues in the Next Gen car, there were suggestions that NASCAR issues hefty fines as retaliation. However, NASCAR President Steve Phelps labelled such news as “ridiculous” and assured of no vendetta against Harvick or the team.

William Byron regains 25-playoff points after appeals panel rescinded his Texas penalty 

SHR have divided to appeal the decision but not many fans are optimistic of it turning in SHR’s favour. They also compared the situation to that of Hendrick Motorsports’ William Byron, who was docked 25 driver points and 25 owner points along with a $50,000 fine initially. However, after an appeal, the points were reinstated and he was issued a $100,000 fine.

It didn’t go well among some fans to see Harvick charged with a bigger fine than Byron. Some even suggested NASCARs favouritism towards Hendrick Motorsports.


Harvick was eliminated from the first round of the playoffs. But the fine would mean that he will finish15th 16th among the 16 playoff drivers. He was already 18 points behind 15th placed Kurt Busch but now he will be 118 points behind.
