Cindric’s Crew Chief Suspended from Alsco 300 at Kentucky Speedway

It’s only practice at Kentucky Speedway, and NASCAR has already began handing out penalties for the NASCAR Xfinity Series teams. 

As a result of illegal body modifications during pre-race technical inspection, the No. 22 Team Penske team was handed a L1-Penalty on Thursday. Crew chief Brian Wilson was escorted from the garage and will be suspended for the weekend, along with being handed a $10,000 fine. Additionally, Austin Cindric and Roger Penske was penalized 10 driver and owner points respectively. 

The team made the required changes, allowing Cindric to partake in the first Xfinity Series practice on Thursday. He was fifth fastest with a lap of 175.970 mph.
