NASCAR issued a slew of fines and penalties Wednesday for infractions that occurred at two races this past weekend.

Ina press release, NASCAR issued the following in the aftermath of the Sprint Cup race at Texas Motor Speedway:

The No. 2 and No. 22 cars fielded by Penske Racing felt the most wrath. Both Fords driven by Brad Keselowski and Joey Logano respectively were found to have pieces that didn’t conform to NASCAR’s rules and found to be in violation of Sections 12-1; 12-4J and 20-12; “(all suspension systems and components must be approved by NASCAR. Prior to being used in competition, all suspension systems and components must be submitted, in a completed form/assembly, to the office of the NASCAR Competition Administrator for consideration of approval and approved by NASCAR. Each such part may thereafter be used until NASCAR determines that such part is no longer eligible. All suspension fasteners and mounting hardware must be made of solid magnetic steel. All front end and rear end suspension mounts with mounting hardware assembled must have single round mounting holes that are the correct size for the fastener being used. All front end and rear end suspension mounts and mounting hardware must not allow movement or realignment of any suspension component beyond normal rotation or suspension travel.)” MORE>>>
