NASCAR fines Robby Gordon's team

NASCAR has fined crew chief Frank Kerr $100,000, suspended him for six races and put him on probation the rest of this season because of a technical violation during Daytona 500 week at Daytona International Speedway.

Owner/driver Robby Gordon's No. 7 Dodge was caught with an unapproved front bumper cover as it was presented for pre-qualifying inspection.

In addition to the crew chief penalties, Gordon was been docked 100 owner and 100 driver points.

Robby Gordon Comments on NASCAR's Penalty

Robby Gordon Comments on NASCAR's Penalty ~ Will Appeal
This was an innocent mistake made by someone not even on my team. They accidentally supplied us the new Dodge noses that NASCAR hasn't yet approved because of what amounted to a clerical error. It was discovered during technical inspection and corrected before the race. It was not even close to being an intent to create some competitive advantage, and the mistake was not even made by my team. This penalty is way out of proportion when you compare it what happened last year when a team was penalized 100 points for adding a substance to the fuel, or when a team deliberately changed the bodies of the COT. To penalize my team the same amount when we didn't even make the mistake, and the mistake was nothing more than inadvertent human error by someone else is just not fair. Other teams who have had similar issues to what happened with the nose on my car were only penalized 25 points.
