Johnson's crew chief ejected from Daytona
This afternoon NASCAR ejected Jimmie Johnson's crew chief Chad Knaus from the Daytona 500. This was the result of the #48 Lowe's Chevy failing post qualifying inspection yesterday. It seems that the rear window was rigged to alter after passing pre qualifying inspection to improve the aerodynamics. Lead engineer Darian Grubb will replace Knaus as Johnson's crew chief at this Sunday's Daytona 500. NASCAR will announce further penalties next week. Expect Knaus to be suspended for a few races.
