Under the new NASCAR Deterrence System, the punishment is a P3 penalty.
The NASCAR rulebook states that any unapproved weight or weight affixed improperly is a violation. The violation is also an action detrimental to stock car racing.
Crew chief Rodney Childers was fined $25,000.
The No. 98 Phil Parsons Racing team was issued a warning for violating the following rule: "When adding or removing fuel to/from the car in the garage area, the car must be outside the garage structure."
The series' next race is Sunday's Pure Michigan 400 (1 p.m. ET, ESPN) at Michigan International Speedway.
