Default Red Bull controversy over Baja 1000

So i have not seen a thread about this yet so hear it is. If any of you followed the Baja 1000 you know that the redbull team won overall but there was some sketchyness to the win and in the rule book (yes there is a rule book) it states that a moving pit stop is illegal and grants a 1hr penalty. Well redbull did just that and were not held accountable and ended up winning what do you guys think??

Isn't it a 90 minute penalty? And BJ was awarded with the win I thought? Or did they overturn the overturn? lol
