The ruling was relayed via text messages that kept coming and coming and coming.
It was good news for Kenseth, who came to Darlington Raceway on Friday a victor after a three-member appeals panel overturned almost all the penalties NASCAR levied against JGR after an illegal part was found in Kenseth's race-winning engine at Kansas.
He'll have Wally Brown, a crew chief with Sprint Cup experience, atop the pit box Saturday night while Jason Ratcliff serves a one-race suspension. Ratcliff was originally suspended six races.
Kenseth also got back 38 of the 50 points docked and goes into the race ranked fourth in the standings.
