CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - NASCAR has fined six Nationwide Series teams for failing inspection at Richmond International Raceway.
The penalties were levied against the three-car teams for Richard Childress Racing and Turner Motorsports. NASCAR said the front upper bumper covers for all six cars had been illegally modified.
Crew chiefs Luke Lambert, Danny Stockman, Trent Owens, Jimmy Elledge, Ernie Cope and Mike Shiplett were all fined $10,000 and placed on probation through Dec. 31.
Car chiefs Phil Gould, Robert Strmiska, Shannon Rursch, Ronald Hornaday III, Paul Balmer and Christopher Meyers also were placed on probation through Dec. 31.
NASCAR did not dock points from the teams, which included Nationwide Series leader Elliott Sadler, third-place Austin Dillon and seventh-place Justin Allgaier.
