CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Clint Bowyer's race-winning car from New Hampshire has failed inspection and NASCAR is penalizing the championship contender 150 points.
Crew chief Shane Wilson was fined $150,000 and suspended for six weeks Wednesday. Team owner Richard Childress has also been docked 50 owner points.
Bowyer won Sunday's opening race in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship to vault from 12th to second in the standings. The penalty drops him back to last place.
