NASCAR reduces Roger Penske crew suspensions in final appeal

NASCAR reduced the penalties for the teams of Brad Keselowski and Joey Logano for violations April 13 at Texas Motor Speedway and also reduced the suspensions of seven crew members from six points races to two, reports NASCAR.com.

Both drivers work for Roger Penske Racing.

But NASCAR upheld 25-point deductions to the drivers and $100,00 fines to the crew chiefs of both drivers. It trimmed four weeks off suspensions, so the suspensions will begin this weekend at Darlington Raceway and end prior to the June 2 event at Dover International Speedway.

The violations stemmed from infractions in rear-end housings and it led to a rushed change-out of equipment in the Penske cars before the Texas race.

“Obviously, I’m very happy with the outcome,” Penske said at the NASCAR Research and Development Center. “As you know, this sport has been built on innovation. All of us try to innovate in areas that are not defined in the rule book. We were in that area. … To me, it’s past it now. We’ve moved on. I have to say again the process was very fair and equitable that NASCAR was able to provide for Penske Racing and our whole team.”
