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

Joey Logano Penske penalized following victory at Richmond

Penske driver Joey Logano's victory at last weekend's Richmond NASCAR Cup round will not count towards the playoffs after a penalty. "We're looking at the silver lining as something that's making us drive to win more and make us a little bit more determined to make it happen, so I think we can make up those points with the right attitude". Per the NASCAR penalty report the No. 22 did not adhere to Section 20.14.3., Truck Trailing Arm Spacers/Pinion Angle Shims.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - NASCAR has penalized Joey Logano four days after his win at Richmond International Raceway, essentially stripping him of all benefits that came with the Monster Cup Series victory.

Logano has won multiple races every years since 2014, so it's more than likely that Logano will soon find himself in victory lane again with a playoff-clinching win. Matt Kenseth's vehicle failed laser inspection after winning at New Hampshire in 2016 and similar to Logano, he was able to keep the win despite the points penalty. 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. "When you're a little bit over, we're sitting talking about what we are today".

Team Penske has accepted responsibility for the violation and will not appeal.

Other penalties from Richmond include Denny Hamlin's crew chief, Mike Wheeler, being fined $10,000 for one lug nut being improperly secured. The team was also assessed with the loss of 25 owner points and 25 driver points.

Pittsburgh Steelers select Cam Sutton with 94th overall pick
Just 16 months ago, Conner was diagnosed with stage 2 Hodgkin lymphoma and spent his offseason dealing with cancer treatments. Smith-Schuster also likes to block, a trait that endeared him to the Pittsburgh coaching staff, though he didn't know it.

So while the issue is more or less closed, Logano will keep the win, technically, but he will have to win again to receive an automatic playoff berth.

Gordon, meanwhile, said a part was about 1/32 of an inch off during the post-race inspection.

Keselowski finished second to his teammate at Richmond and his vehicle was also taken for a further inspection.

"The penalty is pretty severe, " Logano said at Talladega Superspeedway. "To a certain point", Logano said.

Gordon also said: "If you look at our rear suspension. there's not really a whole lot of tomfoolery that goes on to hide something like this". "It has nothing to do with swerving".
