Statement from Furniture Row Racing

Re: P3 Penalty

March 2, 2016

The following statement is attributed to Joe Garone, president of Furniture Row Racing. 


Due to the severity of the P3 penalty levied against Furniture Row Racing and its crew chief Cole Pearn today (Wednesday), the No. 78 Sprint Cup team has informed NASCAR it will appeal the decision. The infraction, which was immediately corrected following technical inspection at Atlanta Motor Speedway last week, was safety related and not competition related. We sincerely appreciate that NASCAR has an appeal process so we can review the level of the penalty. 

Please note: The one-race suspension to Cole Pearn and monetary fine have been deferred until the conclusion of the appeal hearing.
