NASCAR Docks Keselowski and Logano 25 Points Each for Illegal Suspension Parts at Texas

StockCarToons from Mike Smith always topical, and funny  
NASCAR handed down major penalties Wednesday for defending Sprint Cup champion Brad Keselowski and Penske Racing teammate Joey Logano for illegal suspension parts found during prerace inspection Saturday at Texas Motor Speedway.

NASCAR docked Keselowski and Logano 25 points each and suspended their crew chiefs, car chiefs, engineers and competition directors for six points races, plus the Sprint All-Star race.

Crew chiefs Paul Wolfe (Keselowski) and Todd Gordon (Logano) also were fined $100,000.

The loss of 25 points drops Keselowski from second in the standings to fourth, 34 points behind leader Jimmie Johnson and 31 points ahead of 11th-place Matt Kenseth.

Logano drops from ninth in the standings to 14th. Instead of being three points ahead of 11th, he is now 22 points behind 10th, the cutoff spot for an automatic bid to the Chase for the Sprint Cup.
