NASCAR Team Owner Fined for Not Following COVID Protocol

Tony Clements, head of the family-owned No. 51 Jeremy Clements Racing team, was fined $10,000 for his actions last weekend. NASCAR’s penalty report noted that the elder Clements was cited for “non-compliance with essential personnel/team event roster rules.” Those violations fall under Section 12.8.1.b. relating to COVID-19 event protocol guidelines and instructions, and Section 7.7.2.j., which concerns team event roster rules and guidelines.
