Treyten Lapcevich, No. 20 22 Racing Team Issued P2 Penalty Post-Oshweken

Treyten Lapcevich and the No. 20 22 Racing team, which continued their dominant run through the 2023 NASCAR Pinty’s Series season this week at Oshweken Speedway, were issued a P2 penalty by NASCAR following post-race inspection for Monday night’s Freshtone Dirt Classic.

Lapcevich will lose six NASCAR Pinty’s Series championship driver points, the No. 20 22 Racing team will lose six championship owner points, and crew chief Jeff Lapcevich has been fined $1,000, and will be suspended until the fine is paid. Jeff Lapcevich will also be placed on NASCAR probation through December 31, 2023.

According to the penalty report from the NASCAR Pinty’s Series, Lapcevich’s No. 20 car was found to be in violation of Sections 20.E.12.1 of the NASCAR Pinty’s Series Rule Book, which pertains to the coil springs. The passage from the section of the rule book that the No. 20 team was found to be in violation of reads, “Coil spring rubber inserts not to exceed two (2) full coils of the rear coil spring at any time, acceptable to NASCAR Officials, will be permitted.”

The NASCAR Pinty’s Series competed at Oshweken Speedway on back-to-back nights on Monday and Tuesday.

Following Tuesday night’s race, which was won by Lapcevich, the driver of the No. 20 car extended his NASCAR Pinty’s Series point lead to 51 points over his championship rival Marc-Antoine Camirand. With the penalty, that lead drops to 45 points.

Lapcevich led all but one lap in a winning effort on Tuesday night at Oshweken Speedway, and he led 75-laps in Monday night’s event at Oshweken before an incident with lapped traffic led to him finishing fourth. Ken Schrader, driving the No. 22 car fielded by 22 Racing, won that event and became the first non-Canadian-born race-winner in Series history.
