NASCAR came down hard Wednesday on the Joe Gibbs Racing team of Matt Kenseth after the engine in the winning No. 20 car from Sunday's Sprint Cup race at Kansas Speedway failed inspection.
Kenseth was penalized 50 points in the standings and his crew chief, Jason Ratcliff, was suspended for six races -- as well as the May 18 All-Star race -- and fined $200,000 after the engine failed a secondary postrace inspection.


And in a rare move, car owner Joe Gibbs had his owner's license suspended for the next six races and he won't earn car owner points during that time. He also was docked 50 car owner points. Toyota, which supplies the JGR engines through Costa Mesa, Calif.-based TRD, also lost five points in the manufacturer standings.


Damn. Can't remember the last time that happened.

Not sure how much of an advantage having one rod out of eight being lighter would give. Maybe it's what they had to do to make them last a whole race.

Gibbs gets his engines straight from TRD.

Still liking that move from Ford, Matt?

I think Carl Long is still paying NASCAR's fine in pennies today.

"One part came in 2.7 grams underweight, and somehow made it through our processes and ended up unfortunately in an engine that was selected to be weighed," White told ESPN.com.

He said the magnetic steel part, which connects the piston and crankshaft, had a required minimum of 525 grams.

White added the illegal part was underweight by the equivalent of "two cotton balls.''


NASCAR's no tolerance policies are a bit draconian

I don't remember them EVER coming down that hard on ANYONE. It doesn't matter about points though because I guarantee that Matt will get into the chase on wins. It's weird since you'd really think that taking a win away would be the most logical thing to do in this situation. Taking away Kenseth's win and giving him the points for finishing in last would seem a lot more fitting.

Only the vegas win counts as of all this. They took everything but the trophy pretty much.

Got it. That was just the worse penalty could remember recently

Hopefully Gibbs gets his head out of his ass and stops trusting TuRD to send raceworthy engines. First there was the reliability issues, now this. Build your own coach, or switch to Ford lol

Well now...

 


Crew chief Jason Ratcliff had his suspension cut to one race, and the driver and car owner point fines were reduced from 50 to 12 each. A $200,000 fine against Ratcliff remains intact, and he will be on probation for the next three events. All other penalties against Ratcliff, JGR and Kenseth were completely rescinded. Kenseth now moves from 11th to fourth in Sprint Cup points.

A five-point penalty levied against Toyota was increased to seven points as part of the appeal decision. That could affect the annual manufacturers’ championship.
