Statement from Harry Scott, Jr. president and CEO of HScott Motorsports, regarding No. 51 penalty

“The No. 51 experienced a malfunction during the Kobalt 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway that resulted in a P3 infraction being assessed to the team by NASCAR.  The issue was unintentional and we regret its occurrence. Going forward, we have implemented additional procedures to ensure that we do not have a repeat incident.  We accept NASCAR’s penalty and fully support its efforts to keep the sport as safe as possible for competitors, officials and fans.”
