Appeals Panel Amends Hendrick Penalties

CONCORD, N.C. — The National Motorsports Appeals Panel met Wednesday to hear Hendrick Motorsports’ appeal regarding L2-level penalties levied by NASCAR for unapproved parts modifications that occurred at Phoenix Raceway. Appeals Panel members Kelly Housby, Dixon Johnston and Bill Lester made the decision to amend the penalites that were assessed to all four Hendrick Motorsports teams in the NASCAR Cup Series. “We are pleased that the National Motorsports Appeals Panel agreed that Hendrick Motorsports violated the rule book,” NASCAR released in a statement. “We are grateful to the National Motorsports Appeals Panel for their time and attention,” said Hendrick Motorsports team owner Rick Hendrick in a statement. NASCAR discovered and confiscated the hood louvers from all four Hendrick cars before practice on March 10, but allowed the teams to practice before taking the parts back to the R&D Center in Concord, N.C., for further examination.
