 DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - NASCAR Sprint Cup driver Michael McDowell has been docked 50 points and the crew chief for the No. 46 Chevrolet was suspended indefinitely after weight pellets were found in the car's frame at Talladega.
NASCAR said Thursday the violations were uncovered during an inspection two days before McDowell finished 35th in Sunday's race. The penalty leaves him 44th in the standings with 879 points.
Crew chief Thomas Tucker was fined $50,000, and two others also were suspended indefinitely. Car owner Dusty Whitney was penalized 50 points in the owner standings.
The No. 46 team was cited for actions detrimental to stock car racing, along with equipment and weight violations.
