Rick Ware Racing Penalized Following Watkins Glen

Three members of the No. 51 Rick Ware Racing team have been suspended for the next four races after Cody Ware’s Ford lost ballast during Cup Series practice at Watkins Glen International, NASCAR announced in its penalty report Tuesday.

Crew chief Billy Plourde, car chief Jamie Edwards and team engineer Steven Gray will be sidelined through and including the Sept. 17 race at Bristol Motor Speedway after the ballast exited the No. 51 Ford during Saturday’s session. Ballast that separates from the vehicles poses a violation of Sections 14.11.2.1.A&B of the NASCAR Rule Book and incurs the penalties listed in Section 10.5.2.6.E regarding lost ballast.
