Keselowski Hit With Another Penalty
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Penalties have been issued against the No. 2 Penske Racing Ford driven by Brad Keselowski following Sunday’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Dover (Del.) Int’l Speedway.
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.
The team was previously penalized 25 driver and owner points after NASCAR discovered issues with the rear-end housing in both the No. 2 of Keselowski and No. 22 driven by Joey Logano.
The six-point penalty drops Keselowski to 10th in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series standings.
