On Wednesday evening, the teams of Brad Keselowski and Kevin Harvick were hit with penalties following the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race at Phoenix Raceway.

Harvick and the No. 4 Stewart-Haas Racing team were penalized for an unapproved "track bar slider assembly," as crew chief Rodney Childers was fined $25,000 and hit with a one-race suspension. The team lost 10 driver and 10 owner points.

Keselowski and the No. 2 Team Penske gang was hit even harder after failing post-race inspection. Crew chief Paul Wolfe was fined $65,000 and placed on suspension for the next three races. Keselowski also lost 35 driver points while the team lost 35 owner points.

Shortly after the penalties, Team Penske announced that Brian Wilson will be Keselowski's replacement atop the pit box for the next three weeks.

After the news was handed down, Keselowski was live on "NASCAR Race Hub" to discuss his thoughts on the penalties.
