DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- Penalties have been levied to the No. 22 NASCAR Nationwide Series team as a result of rules violations committed last Saturday at Dover International Speedway.

During post-race inspection Sept. 28, the No. 22 car was found to have violated Sections 12-1 (actions detrimental to stock car racing); 12-4J (any determination by NASCAR officials that the race equipment used in the event does not conform to the NASCAR rules detailed in Section 20-A of the NASCAR rule book, or has been approved by NASCAR prior to the event); and 20A-12.8.1(B) (the car failed to meet the minimum front car heights) of the 2013 rule book.

As a result of this violation, crew chief Jeremy Bullins has been fined $10,000 and owner Roger Penske has been docked with the loss of six championship series car owner points.
