Kevin Harvick stripped of berth in NASCAR championship race

Kevin Harvick stripped of berth in NASCAR championship race

However, after next week, the season is over, which will leave me with a void until the 2019 Speedweeks at Daytona International Speedway.

Miller said NASCAR officials at ISM Raceway in Phoenix this weekend will further scrutinize all spoilers before cars go on track as a response to the penalty.

Stewart-Haas Racing will not appeal the penalty. NASCAR found Harvick had an illegal race-winning auto - his second of the season - after his victory at Texas Motor Speedway earned him an automatic berth in the November 18 title race in Florida. Gibson has never won a Cup championship.

He was penalized 40 points (what a driver earns for a win) but earned 60 points during the event because he swept the first two stages. He effectively went from being locked into the Championship 4 to being just three points ahead of Kurt Busch in the fourth and final Championship 4 spot. Standing room only tickets include admission into the gates as well as access into the all-new INfield, allowing unparalleled access to Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series garages, Gatorade Victory Lane, driver appearances, O'Reilly Auto Parts Pre-Race Party and exclusive INfield food and beverage options.

Someone will get Joey Logano good and end his race early this weekend.

NASCAR will evaluate its penalty system following the season, a typical procedure and one that could spark additional internal debate about whether NASCAR needs to start disqualifying teams for violations and whether it must crack down on teams failing inspections multiple times prior to qualifying and the race.

"We realize that we kind of probably need to ramp up the severity of what goes on at the race track, and we're hoping that we can change the culture to where we don't have to play this cat-and-mouse game with the teams all the time because we have to make it a little bit more outcome for them than just saying, 'Take that [piece] off, '" Miller said. He pulled it off and is a nine-time victor at Phoenix, including earlier this year. Even without Childers on top of the pit box, he is my pick to win this Sunday.

Joey Logano is now the only driver locked into Homestead with "The Big Three" of Harvick, Kyle Busch and Martin Truex Jr. now in on merit. With the penalty, Harvick is still in the playoffs on merit, but just three points ahead of teammate Kurt Busch for the final spot. Chase Elliott trails Harvick by 17 points. NASCAR has for several years refused to give specifics about infractions - keeping secret ideas on how to game the system - but reversed course on the Harvick penalty because of mounting criticism about the severity of his punishment.
