NASCAR sent a note to teams stating that it had released incorrect information on Daytona 500 earnings.

NASCAR sent the following note to teams Thursday:

“The information on 2016 Daytona 500 race team earnings posted (Wednesday) on, our media services website was factually incorrect. We removed the information, rectified the errors and are providing the correct information to race teams. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused and now collectively turn our focus to NASCAR racing action this weekend in Atlanta.”

The information provided to the media on the site was the basis for this post.

Although NASCAR has stated that it does not plan to list winnings after races, it listed the winnings from Sunday’s Daytona 500 in a media packet.

The winnings in the original list that was incorrect stated Joe Gibbs Racing received $1,507,592 for Denny Hamlin’s victory. Team Penske received $1,581,453 last year for Joey Logano’s Daytona 500 victory.
