Hit by NASCAR penalty, Logano says team doesn't cheat

Hit by NASCAR penalty, Logano says team doesn't cheat

Logano's teammate Brad Keselowski is still appealing a penalty from a race in March.

NASCAR said that on further inspection, Joey Logano's No. 22 Penske Team violated a parts rule. Penske is the only organization to have multiple drivers win on the year.

Gordon also said: "If you look at our rear suspension. there's not really a whole lot of tomfoolery that goes on to hide something like this".

Logano was penalized 30 minutes of practice time at the start of Richmond weekend for swerving after the previous race at Bristol.

Thomas is expected to fly to Washington state to be with his family and help complete funeral arrangements for his sister. Avery Bradley and Isaiah Thomas are small guards, so it's not their fault if they don't get a lot of rebounds.

It's the first time NASCAR has "encumbered" a race win since the encumber term was introduced into NASCAR lexicon in 2016. Every race team is.

There was no immediate word from Team Penske on whether it would appeal the penalty or who would replace Gordon this week at Talladega.

"We understand and accept the penalty that was communicated to us today by NASCAR following last weekend's victory by the No. 22 vehicle at Richmond". Race engineer Miles Stanley will be Logano's crew chief at Talladega with Greg Erwin assisting on strategy Sunday. The win doesn't count for qualification into the playoffs and Logano can't use the five bonus points for the playoffs that he earned for the win.

Also, the 25-point penalty dropped Logano from fourth to fifth in the standings. The specific problem was with the truck-trailing arm spacer along with the pinion angle shim.

BJP practising political vendetta of worst order

Modifying the part enhances a driver's ability to move through the corners of the track. The infraction was discovered during teardown at the R&D Center in Concord, North Carolina.

NASCAR also fined Gordon $50,000 and docked Joey Logano 25 points and Team Penske 25 auto owner points after Logano's winning vehicle from Richmond failed inspection at the R&D Center. "Like I said, it wasn't a big deal, but it is black and white and for that reason we'll have to pay a penalty for that". But obviously from the outside, we've lost all the benefits of the win.

Other penalties from Richmond include Denny Hamlin's crew chief, Mike Wheeler, being fined $10,000 for one lug nut being improperly secured.

Three XFINITY Series teams faced lug nut issues as well in Richmond's post race inspection.
