The team of NASCAR Nationwide Series driver Elliott Sadler has been penalized for a rules infraction discovered in postrace inspection at Iowa Speedway Sunday.
Sadler's No. 2 Chevrolet did not conform to body height requirements as the "car failed to meet the minimum rear car heights," according to a NASCAR release.
As a result, crew chief Luke Lambert has been fined $10,000, while owner DeLana Harvick and driver Elliott Sadler have been penalized with the loss of six championship owner and six championship driver points, respectively.
Sadler is second in the Nationwide Series standings to Ricky Stenhouse Jr., whom he now trails by 34 points.
