The Sprint Cup teams of Greg Biffle, Casey Mears, Brett Moffitt and Alex Kennedy were issued written warnings Thursday for issues at the Quaker State 400 at Kentucky Speedway, according to

The warnings were issued after the four teams had to go through inspection too many times. If any of the teams are issued warnings this weekend at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, they could be subject to a P1-level penalty.

The Sprint Cup Rule Book states in section that if the same team receives two warnings during two consecutive events – whether a points event or not – then the team faces a P1 penalty that could include one or more of the following: Deduction of practice time, deduction of qualifying time, last choice in selecting pits, delay in order of inspection and/or other penalties.
