CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — NASCAR has fined Hendrick Motorsports $100,000 for exceeding the amount of wind tunnel testing allowed in a year.

The organization has also been docked 10 hours of wind tunnel time for next year.

An organization is allowed a maximum of 70 hours in 2020 and 90 hours in 2021.

The testing is defined as billable hours reported by the wind tunnel.

Hendrick Motorsports self-reported the violation after discovering it had exceeded 70 hours by “less than an hour.”
