In crew chief Paul Wolfe’s first race back atop the No. 2 Penske Racing NASCAR Sprint Cup Series pit box after serving a two-race suspension for a rules infraction from earlier this season, the No. 2 team (driver: Brad Keselowski) has been penalized again. Following Sunday’s FedEx 400 at Dover (Del.) International Speedway, the No. 2 Ford failed post-race inspection, because the front of the car was determined to be too low.
This time around, Wolfe was fined $25,000 and will remain on NASCAR probation until the end of the year. Keselowski lost six driver points and car owner Roger Penske was docked six owner points.
In its penalty announcement on Tuesday NASCAR cited 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.
