 CONCORD, N.C. (AP) - Richard Childress Racing is arguing to have Clint Bowyer's 150-point penalty reversed before a NASCAR appeals committee.
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 leader Denny Hamlin.
The penalty dropped Bowyer to 12th in the standings, and he trails Hamlin by 235 points with eight Chase races remaining.
RCR is appealing the decision to the National Stock Car Racing Appeals Panel.
The appeal is a longshot. According to NASCAR, of the 132 appeals heard over the last decade, 92 of those decisions were upheld. Only 10 penalties were overturned.
