NASCAR has officially announced the penalties that are being levied against the race team. Brad Keselowski’s crew chief Paul Wolfe, and Joey Logano’s crew chief Todd Gordon will miss the next six races as they are suspended. Each crew chief has been fined $100,000 and Roger Penske has been docked 25 points in the owner standings for both cars, and Keselowski and Logano have also lost 25 driver points for the infraction. Both Wolfe and Gordon will also be on probation until December 31st. In the Camping World Truck series, Ron Hornaday Jr. has lost 25 points, he has been fined $25,000 and he will be on probation until June 12th. Hornaday crashed fellow competitor Darrell Wallace Jr. during a late caution period at Rockingham Speedway, and now he feels the wrath of NASCAR.
