CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Kyle Busch has been docked six points and his crew chief fined $25,000 because his car failed post-race inspection at Pocono Raceway.
The No. 18 Toyota was found to be too low during NASCAR's inspection Sunday. NASCAR responded Monday by docking Busch six driver points and car owner Joe Gibbs six owner points.
Crew chief Dave Rogers received the fine.
Busch finished third in the race. Despite the penalty, he remains fifth in the standings, but he now trails leader Carl Edwards by 31 points.
This is the first penalty for a Sprint Cup Series team since the implementation of the new points system. Under the old points system, failing to meet the required height was typically a 25-point penalty.
