CONCORD, N.C. (AP) - Richard Childress Racing has lost its appeal before a NASCAR committee to have Clint Bowyer's 150-point penalty reversed.
Childress emerged from NASCAR's research and development center Wednesday evening after a nearly 5-hour hearing and said his appeal was denied.
He says his next appeal will be to NASCAR's chief appellate officer.
Bowyer and his RCR team were penalized last week when the car Bowyer drove to victory at New Hampshire failed inspection. The win came in the opening race of the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship and pushed Bowyer to second in the standings, 35 points behind Denny Hamlin.
The penalty dropped Bowyer to 12th in the standings, and he trails Hamlin by 235 points with eight Chase races remaining.
