 CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Matt Kenseth was essentially stripped of his win at Kansas on Wednesday because his race-winning car failed inspection.
NASCAR found one of the eight connecting rods in the engine of the No. 20 Toyota used Sunday did not meet the minimum weight requirement once it was inspected at its Research & Development Center.
As punishment, Kenseth was stripped of 50 driver points in standings, as well as the three bonus points he earned for the win that would have been applied in seeding for the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship. His pole also was stripped.
Crew chief Jason Ratcliff was fined $200,000 and suspended six races.
Car owner Joe Gibbs also was suspended six races and will not earn any owner points during his suspension.
JGR plans to appeal.
