DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — NASCAR has fined team owner Chip Ganassi $30,000 and fined him one race for bringing a guest into the pit area at Daytona International Speedway.
The competition areas at the track are restricted as part of COVID-19 protocols.
NASCAR this season expanded the rosters by one slot to permit the team owners into the pits.
Team owners were not permitted last season and had to watch races from a suite across from the infield.
Ganassi will not be permitted into the infield at Homestead-Miami Speedway on Sunday.
