Joey Logano, Penske penalized following victory at Richmond

Joey Logano, Penske penalized following victory at Richmond

Team Penske can appeal the penalties, but it isn't yet known if it intends to do so. Greg Erwin, a crew chief in the organization's Xfinity program, will help call race strategy Sunday.

Although the vehicle passed post-race inspection, the winning auto is routinely taken for a more in-depth inspection and teardown at the R&D Center.

"Losing Todd is a very big part of our race team", Logano said. NASCAR has penalized some teams for the practice. NASCAR said on Thursday the truck arm in the back of the vehicle was installed improperly.

"As part of the new 2017 points system, drivers earn one playoff point for a stage win and five playoff points for a race win, plus the top 10 in the final regular-season standings earn playoff points on a 15-10-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 scale".




NASCAR announced on Thursday it has issued the most severe discipline, an L1-level penalty, to the No. 22 team for a rear suspension violation discovered during teardown at the R&D Center in Concord, North Carolina.

NASCAR typically takes the race victor and a random auto or two to the R&D center for further tear down after a race.

"The fact of the matter is we're winning right now, and when your auto wins, it gets put through tech a lot. Rear Suspension I-4 f. Truck Trailing Arm Spacers/Pinion Angle Shims" of the rulebook.

"Honestly, I don't believe that we wear a black hat or anything like that", Logano said about the team. I think we push as hard as we can because we're looking for hundredths of a second - every race team is - the fact of the matter is we're winning right now and when your auto wins it gets put through tech a lot. "We're going to have to push as hard as we can to be successful, and sometimes you go over that line". Logano's teammate Brad Keselowski had his crew chief suspended three races earlier this season for a similar infraction (Keselowski finished fifth in the race in question). You have to find that edge and get right to it. Both teams work out of the same garage in Charlotte, N.C., but only Logano's vehicle was penalized for infractions after Sunday's race. If you go a little bit over, we're sitting with what we're talking about today.
