Gragson is Cup racing in the Daytona 500 for Beard racing. They have Gragson in the #62, an alliance with RCR and they have Brenden Gaughan up on the pit box as vice president of racing operations. What's not to like.
I think I'd rather have Noah on the box and Brenden in the car, at least for fantasy purposes.

Those were his X cars? I just assumed they were cars for a lower series, an assumption based on the rules against testing.

"Surely an successful, informed owner knows testing isn't allowed!"

I wondered if those pics Harmon had at the Rock were a testing violation. Bacarella suspended for substance abuse policy.

Labbe drove an Xfinity car at the Daytona road course days before the race last year and got away with it.
I mean they were Zombie Dodges, but damn that's a heavy penalty for his organization
A picture published on his twitter shows him driving a Chevy. Would NASCAR even have noticed if he hadn't posted anything?

No Labbe got hit, Mario Gosselin had the same penalty placed onto him as Harmon:

Labbe was docked 75 points. Or did DGM protest the penalties? I cannot remember that well.

I don't think intentions matter. Even if they did, it appears this 'charity event' was put on by an outfit called 'Motorsports 4 the Masses'. Based on this link referring to their Bristol rental,


the tracks, not M4them, make a charitable contribution equivalent to the rental fees. M4them would be paying the track fees regardless of what the track did with the money. Anything participation / entry fees above the track rental costs are profit for M4them. The linked page explicitly refers to M4them as a 'business'.

Maybe this was presented to Harmon as a charity event. At 5:30 in the morning with only five minutes of research, it looks like a profit-making endeavor to me.

They’re seriously penalizing Harmon for running a car at Rockingham?
