NASCAR penalized 11 teams Wednesday and had one previously assessed penalty reduced by the National Motorsports Appeals Panel.
On the Sprint Cup side, 10 teams were penalized, including two on multiple counts.
The No. 24 team of Jeff Gordon was warned for failing pre-qualifying inspection multiple times.
Bowyer also received an additional warning for failing the pre-race templates multiple times.
The No. 22 team of race winner Joey Logano, the No. 2 of teammate Brad Keselowski and the No. 21 of Ryan Blaney were warned for violating two sections of the NASCAR rulebook in regards to installing/modifying existing components that affect the aerodynamic properties of the racecar.
The No. 26 team of JJ Yeley was warned for making unapproved adjustments to the car during a pit stop.
Tony Stewart’s No. 14 team was warned on three different counts. The team failed pre-qualifying inspection multiple times, failing pre-race templates multiple times and committed an infraction related to the driver-adjusted track bar.
For Keselowski and Stewart, the warnings were their fourth of the season, and each will lose pit selection in the upcoming race at Kansas. Stewart will also lose 15 minutes of practice on Friday.
On the Xfinity Series side, Yeley’s No. 28 team was warned for failing laser inspection too many times and will lose 15 minutes of practice Friday.
The No. 54 Joe Gibbs Racing team of Kyle Busch presented their appeal to the NMAP in regards to penalties following the Chicagoland race weekend. NASCAR had penalized the team for being too low following the race, fining crew chief Christopher Gayle $12,500, placing him on probation and fining the team 10 owner points.
Following the appeal, the NMAP reduced the fine to $8,500.
