Wolfe suspended as NASCAR slams Penske

(Continued)

NASCAR didn’t punish Keselowski for his post-race rant.

Keselowski spent Tuesday at the White House, where President Barack Obama honored him and his crew for winning the Sprint Cup championship.

Truex, who finished second at Texas behind Kyle Busch, was punished for having a front end that was too low. He and owner Michael Waltrip were each docked six points and crew chief Chad Johnston was fined $25,000 and placed on probation until June 5. The points deduction dropped Truex from 16th to 19th heading into this weekend’s race at Kansas.

NASCAR fined Hornaday $25,000 and docked him 25 points for spinning Darrell Wallace Jr. under caution in Sunday’s Truck Series race at Rockingham. Hornaday’s team, NTS Motorsports, said it wouldn’t appeal the penalties.
