NASCAR Penalizes Penske Racing For Dover Infraction
Posted By Michael J Smith On October 1, 2013 @ 3:38 pm In N'Wide | No Comments
Joey Logano drove the car to his fourth straight Nationwide Series victory at Dover International Speedway.
The team was found to have violated Sections 12-1 (actions detrimental to stock car racing); 12-4J (any determination by NASCAR officials that the race equipment used in the event does not conform to the NASCAR rules detailed in Section 20-A of the NASCAR rule book, or has been approved by NASCAR prior to the event); and 20A-12.8.1(B) (the car failed to meet the minimum front car heights) of the 2013 rule book.
As a result, crew chief Jeremy Bullins has been fined $10,000 and owner Roger Penske has been docked with the loss of six championship series car owner points.
According to Penske Racing, No. 22 had a spring retaining screw back out during the race, causing the car’s front end to be too low by 1/16 of an inch.
They said that they are addressing the problem internally to prevent it from happening again and the team is not planning to appeal the penalty.
