NASCAR announced a bevy of post-race penalties following a tripleheader weekend for its three national series at Dover International Speedway.

Among them were two heavy-hitting announcements that personified NASCAR’s enforcement of its rule against drivers exiting their cars before the arrival of safety personnel.

In the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, Trevor Bayne, driver of the No. 6 car, has received a penalty for his actions during the May 31 NSCS race, which violated Sections 12.1, 12.8 b and 10.4.2.1 in the 2015 NASCAR rule book. After the No. 6 car was involved in an on-track incident, the driver walked across the racing surface before he was attended to by the track safety crew.

Bayne has been fined $20,000 and placed on NASCAR probation through Dec. 31.

In the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, Jennifer Jo Cobb, driver of the No. 10 truck, has received a penalty for her actions during the May 29 race which also violated Sections 12-1, 12.8 b and 10.4.2.1 in the 2015 NASCAR rule book. After the No. 10 truck was involved in an on-track incident, the driver walked across the racing surface before she was attended to by the track safety crew.

Cobb has been fined $5,000 and placed on NASCAR probation through Dec. 31.
