DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — NASCAR declined to penalize the 31 cars that failed inspection in the Sprint Cup and Nationwide Series at Daytona.

"Based upon our inspection and subsequent review, it was our determination that the functionality and safety aspects of the roof flaps were not compromised and the on track competition would not be impacted," NASCAR vice president of competition Robin Pemberton said.
