NASCAR suspends crew chiefs for Keselowski and Harvick

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — NASCAR suspended the crew chiefs for Brad Keselowski and Kevin Harvick on Wednesday for violations at Phoenix Raceway.

Keselowski's car failed post-race inspection on Sunday and NASCAR suspended crew chief Paul Wolfe three races. Wolfe was also fined $65,000 and Team Penske was docked 35 driver and owner points.

Team Penske said it will not immediately appeal and Brian Wilson will fill in for Wolfe this weekend at California.

"The race cars returned to the race shop (Wednesday) and we are in the process of evaluating the area in question," the team said.
