NASCAR Impounds Two Cars

19287Jpg
NASCAR has confiscated the No. 42 Havoline Dodge driven by Jamie McMurray because the car failed to meet the X-measurement of the rear window.

NASCAR officials expect to return the No. 42 to its technical, research and development facility in Concord, N.C., for further investigation.

"This is an unfortunate situation that happened today at Bristol with the 42 car," Chip Ganassi said. "This is a short track car from last season that we put a new body on during the off season. If there was an error made in the body shop on our part, we will get it rectified. We look forward to working closely with NASCAR to make sure this issue is resolved in a timely manner."

McMurray's Dodge is the third car over the past year to be seized following Kurt Busch's No. 60 Ditech.com Chevy at Homestead and Tony Stewart's Home Depot Chevy at Texas in 2003.

The X-measurement is taken at the rear window and is measured diagonally from each top corner of the window to the bottom corner on the opposite side.

McMurray, who will now drive his backup car, is currently 19th in the drivers championship, 201-points behind leader Matt Kenseth.

A.J. Foyt Racing had to withdraw the No. 14 entry of Larry Foyt because it was also found to be in violation. Foyt's backup car was a superspeedway car and it could not be used at the .533-mile oval.
