Hit by NASCAR penalty, Logano says team doesn't cheat

Hit by NASCAR penalty, Logano says team doesn't cheat

Team Penske has been docked 25 owner and driver points while crew chief Todd Gordon has been suspended for two races. There are races where it may not know if a vehicle in second or third place is illegal, even if it passes cursory at-track inspection. Miles Stanley will serve as Logano's crew chief this weekend at Talladega Superspeedway, with Greg Erwin helping with race strategy.

And if NASCAR doesn't speed up its midweek inspection process throughout the course of the 2017 season, the delay in announcing Logano's penalty sets up a more than zero chance that fans could find out days later that the driver who wins the 2017 championship at Homestead did so with an illegal vehicle. The 26-year-old driver said the violation is considered minor and didn't make his auto any faster. The No. 22 team failed to do so and was penalized accordingly.

"I still look at it as a win", Logano said. Every race team is. Penske confirmed it would not appeal the decision.

It also means that the win is considered encumbered, a term that NASCAR has had in place since last season but never used until now. The official race record will still list Logano as the victor. The penalty carries multiple consequences, which includes making Logano's win at Richmond on Sunday encumbered and taking away the five playoff points that came with the victory. In addition, there is a loss of 25 driver points and 25 owners points. Depending on how those parts move, the driver has a greater chance to drive through the corner. The violation was discovered in the No. 22's rear suspension during teardown in Concord, N.C., according to NASCAR, citing "Section 20.14.2. Like I said, it wasn't a big deal, but it is black and white and for that reason we'll have to pay a penalty for that". "Obviously. we've lost all the benefits of the win". Crew chief Mike Wheeler was fined $10,000 for the infraction.
