DOVER, Del. (AP) - NASCAR has set a Sept. 29 date for an appeals hearing on Clint Bowyer's illegal car.
Bowyer's car failed a follow-up inspection and he was penalized 150 points after winning last weekend's first race of the Chase for the Sprint Cup. NASCAR also fined crew chief Shane Wilson $150,000, and suspended him for the next six Sprint Cup races. Car chief Chad Haney was also suspended six races, and team owner Richard Childress was docked 150 owner points.
Bowyer gave a defiant defense of his win at New Hampshire and said he wouldn't cheat to win. Childress also said his team did nothing wrong.
Both blamed the push from a tow truck for putting the body of the car out of tolerance.
Wilson is working this weekend at Dover International Speedway because the case is being appealed.
