DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – The NASCAR Toyota Series announced today penalties to two drivers as a result of violations committed on Sunday, Nov. 10 at Autódromo Hermanos Rodriguez in Mexico City, Mexico.  

Daniel Suárez, driver of the No. 3 car, and Rubén Garcia Jr., driver of the No. 88 car, were found to be in violation of Section 25.3 (actions detrimental to stock car racing) of the 2013 NASCAR Toyota Series rule book.

Suárez and Garcia Jr. were each placed on indefinite suspension, fined 75 thousand Mexican pesos ($5,760) and placed on probation for half of 2014 season for their role in a post-race altercation. The penalty extends across all NASCAR sanctioned series and neither driver will be able to participate in NASCAR-sanctioned events until the penalty is paid, including the year-end awards in Mexico City and Charlotte, N.C.
