NASCAR confirmed Tuesday that it has penalized Brad Keselowski and his No. 2 Penske Ford team after the front end of the Miller Lite's Ford measured too low in post-race inspection at Dover. Keselowski finished fifth in the race.
Keselowski was docked six driver points, which dropped him two positions to 10th in the Sprint Cup standings. Crew chief Paul Wolfe was also fined $25,000 and will remain on probation until Dec. 31.
In a statement, Penske Racing accepted responsibility for the transgression and indicated they would not appeal. The team said the low height was the result of a part failure. "The problem is being addressed internally to ensure it does not occur again," the team added.
