NASCAR handed out penalties and fines Tuesday to the No. 2 Penske Racing Ford after the car was found to be too low in post-race inspection Sunday at Dover International Speedway.

Driver Brad Keselowski was docked six driver points, as was car owner Roger Penske who lost six owner points. Crew chief Paul Wolfe has been fined $25,000 and will remain on NASCAR probation until Dec. 31.

Keselowski, the reigning NASCAR Sprint Cup champion, finished fifth in Sunday’s FedEx 400. In April the team was fined when both cars, the No. 5 raced by Keselowski and the No. 22 raced by Joey Logano, were found to have violations centering in the rear end housings of the cars at the race at Texas Motor Speedway. The team was hit with suspensions for seven crewmembers including crew chief’s for six races. On appeal the suspensions were reduced to two weeks but fines to the crew chiefs of $100,000 and 25 point deductions to the drivers were upheld. MORE>>>
