CONCORD, N.C. — The National Stock Car Racing Appeals Panel heard and considered the appeal of the No. 2 and No. 22 Penske Racing NASCAR Sprint Cup Series teams on Wednesday, upholding the previous penalties assessed to the two teams.

The teams were found to have suspension parts that were not approved by NASCAR during prerace inspection at Texas Motor Speedway April 13.

The panel made up of Brandon Igdalsky, Paul Brooks, Dale Pinilis and non-voting member Shawn Rogers considered the testimony and reviewed the facts and decided to uphold the penalties that were assessed by NASCAR.

Paul Wolfe, crew chief for Brad Keselowski’s No. 2, and Todd Gordon, crew chief for the No. 22 driven by Joey Logano, were each fined $100,000 and suspended from NASCAR until the completion of the next six NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championship points events (including the non-points Sprint All-Star Race) and placed on probation until Dec. 31.

Car chiefs Jerry Kelley (No. 2) and Raymond Fox (No. 22) , team engineers Brian Wilson (No. 2) and Samuel Stanley (No. 22) and team manager Travis Geisler (serves as team manager for both the No. 2 and No. 22 cars) have been suspended from NASCAR until the completion of the next six NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championship points events (including the non-points Sprint All-Star Race) and placed on probation until Dec. 31.
