Penske Penalties Continue, Brad Keselowski’s #2 Low At Dover Inspection
June 4, 2013 1 Comment
The No. 2 car 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 NASCAR rules); and 20-12.8.1B (the car failed to meet the minimum front car heights during post-race inspection) of the 2013 rule book.
As a result of this violation, crew chief Paul Wolfe has been fined $25,000 and will remain on NASCAR probation until Dec. 31. The team has also been docked six championship driver (Brad Keselowski) and six championship car owner (Roger Penske) points.
PENSKE UPDATE: “The Penske Racing No. 2 Miller Lite Ford Fusion experienced a part failure during Sunday’s Dover Sprint Cup Series Race which resulted in the car’s front end being too low when presented for post-race inspection. The problem is being addressed internally to ensure it does not occur again and the team is not planning to appeal the penalty.”
