You’re not hallucinating if you’ll read this next sentence and think you’ve read it before this year, because you have.
On Tuesday, NASCAR announced penalties to Penske Racing for an infraction, although not as severe as the measures taken, and later reduced, against them at Texas. This time, Brad Keselowski and the No. 2 Miller Lite Ford team were docked six driver and owner points for the front end of the car measuring too low in post-race inspection.
Crew chief Paul Wolfe was fined $25,000. Penske Racing said in a statement that it had “experienced a part failure … 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.”
