CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - NASCAR has penalized Danica Patrick's crew chief for a rules violation last weekend at Phoenix.
Crew chief Tony Eury Jr. was fined $10,000 on Tuesday and placed on probation through March.
The penalty was for an improperly attached weight on Patrick's car in the Nationwide Series race on Saturday. Patrick was involved in an early accident and finished 21st.
Patrick is moving to NASCAR full time next season and will run the Nationwide schedule for JR Motorsports with Eury as her crew chief. She'll also run 10 Sprint Cup Series races for Stewart-Haas Racing.
