Keselowski fails post race inspection..........

Keselowski fails post-race inspection: According to media members at Dover, #2-Keselowski failed post-race inspection because his Ford was too low in the front. The car will be further examined at the NASCAR Research & Development Center. Penalties are typically announced on Tuesdays. Earlier this year #56-Truex, Jr. was penalized 6 points when his car was too low after the Texas race.(6-2-2013


I think they are still on probation for the last penalties...this can't be good!?! :roll:

Yeah, the part failed to be the right length/height whatever because it was improperly installed. Paul Wolfe is certainly no Chad Knaus.

Update from previous post.............

Keselowski fails post-race inspection UPDATE: According to media members at Dover, #2-Keselowski failed post-race inspection because his Ford was too low in the front. The car will be further examined at the NASCAR Research & Development Center. Penalties are typically announced on Tuesdays. Earlier this year #56-Truex, Jr. was penalized 6 points when his car was too low after the Texas race.(6-2-2013)


UPDATE: Brad Keselowski and Penske Racing face potential penalties after the front end of the #2 Ford was found to be too low in inspection following Sunday's Sprint Cup race at Dover International Speedway. Keselowski finished fifth in the race to move up two spots to eighth in the standings. If penalized, it would be the second time this season. Keselowski was docked 25 points after NASCAR discovered an unapproved rear end housing before the April race at Texas.(ESPN)(6-3-2013)

Re: Keselowski fails post race inspection..........

Since the car went through tech inspection right before the race, I'd say it was something that happened during the race. I don't know that this will be any big deal, but you never know since NASCAR had their hands slapped by the last couple of appeals. I guess we'll see tomorrow afternoon...

Re: Keselowski fails post race inspection..........

As Penske Racing awaits potential penalties for Brad Keselowski's Ford failing postrace inspection at Dover International Speedway, the team blamed a broken part for the car not meeting minimum height. Team spokesman Jonathan Gibson [said] the part failure caused the front of the car to be too low. In a text message, Roger Penske called the Dover infraction "unfortunate," and said the team wouldn't appeal any possible penalty. #56-Martin Truex Jr.'s Toyota was too low in postrace inspection at Texas, resulting in a six-point deduction, a $25,000 fine and probation for crew chief Chad Johnston. Michael Waltrip Racing didn't appeal the punishment and said the car didn't meet minimum height because of debris in the shock that didn't allow it to rebound.

Re: Keselowski fails post race inspection..........

From Jayski's:

#2 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Team Penalized For Violation: Penalties have been handed down to the #2 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series team following last Sunday's race at Dover International Speedway. The #2 car was found to have violated Sections 12-1 (actions detrimental to stock car racing); 12-4J (any determination by NASCAR officials that the race equipment used in the event does not conform to NASCAR rules); and 20-12.8.1B (the car failed to meet the minimum front car heights during post-race inspection) of the 2013 rule book. As a result of this violation, crew chief Paul Wolfe has been fined $25,000 and will remain on NASCAR probation until Dec. 31. The team has also been docked six championship driver (Brad Keselowski) and six championship car owner (Roger Penske) points.(NASCAR)(6-4-2013)

No word yet from Penske if they will appeal.

Jelli's last post quoted Penske as saying the team would not appeal.

I wonder if they might change their minds now that the penalties are official.
