BRISTOL, Tenn. (AP) - Richard Childress Racing is appealing the penalties NASCAR levied against Paul Menard's race team this week.
Crew chief Slugger Labbe is at Bristol Motor Speedway on Friday working on the No. 27 Chevrolet. Labbe was fined $100,000 and suspended until Oct. 3 because NASCAR said the car's frame rails had been intentionally modified in an effort to deceive inspectors.
Menard and car owner Richard Childress were each docked 25 points, while car chief Craig Smokstad and crew member Grant Hutchens were both also suspended until Oct. 3.
All sanctions are on hold during the appeal process.
Meanwhile, an RCR spokesman also confirmed that Gil Martin is back as crew chief for Kevin Harvick. Martin worked with Harvick for three seasons, but was replaced by Shane Wilson this year.
