NASCAR penalized Kevin Harvick’s Stewart-Haas Racing’s No. 4 team on Wednesday for two violations relating to a rear-window malfunction on Harvick’s Las Vegas-winning car on Sunday.

Kevin Harvick NASCAR Penalty news

NASCAR rules dictate that the rear window support braces must keep the rear window glass rigid in all directions at all times. The right side rocker panel extension did not meet NASCAR rule specifications, as it was not an aluminum extension.

The team has three days to decide whether or not to appeal the penalty.

Harvick’s victory at the Pennzoil 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway was his second consecutive win this season.
