Keselowski, Allgaier teams penalized for Las Vegas rule infractions
The teams of Team Penske driver Brad Keselowski and HScott Motorsports driver Justin Allgaier have been penalized for unrelated infractions discovered this past weekend at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, NASCAR announced late Tuesday.
Allgaier’s crew chief, Steve Addington, has been fined $25,000, and the No. 51 team has been levied a P3 level penalty after the car’s ballast was observed falling off during Sunday’s Kobalt 400. The car also did not meet NASCAR’s post-race minimum weight requirements.
Keselowski’s No. 2 team was hit with a P2 level penalty — a result of the car’s right and left rear quarter panel wheel openings being modified after qualifying inspection on March 6. As a result, crew chief Paul Wolfe has been placed on NASCAR probation through Dec. 31.
Neither team was docked points.
