Norm Benning

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — NASCAR has penalized Norm Benning’s No. 57 team in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series as a result of rule infractions discovered during opening-day inspection Oct. 4 at Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway.

The No. 57 truck was found to be in violation of Sections 12-1 (actions detrimental to stock car racing); 12-4J (any determination by NASCAR Officials that race equipment used in the event does not conform to NASCAR rules detailed in Section 20B of the NASCAR Rule Book, or has not been approved by NASCAR prior to the Event); Section 20B-2.3A: (any weight added to the truck must be bolted inside the body shell in an approved weight container and in a position acceptable to NASCAR Officials: Improperly attached weight to the truck bed cover) of the 2012 NASCAR rule book.

As a result, crew chief Ted Walters has been fined $5,000, and placed on NASCAR probation until Dec. 31.

Benning went on to a 15th-place finish in the Fred’s 250 at the 2.66-mile superspeedway.
