NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series Driver, Crew Chief and Owner Penalized for Michigan Infractions

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (Aug 23, 2005) -- NASCAR announced today that three penalties have been issued to the No. 49 Dodge team in the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series as a result of rules infractions last weekend at Michigan.

The penalties were issued because of a roof height that was too low, a violation of Section 12-4-A (Actions detrimental to stock car racing), and Section 12-4-Q (car, parts, components and/or equipment used in the Event do not conform to NASCAR rules) of the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series rule book. This infraction was discovered during post-race inspection.

Ken Schrader, driver of the No. 49, was penalized with the loss of 25 NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series driver championship points. Car owner Beth Ann Morgenthau was penalized with the loss of 25 NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series owner championship points. Crew chief David Hyder was fined $25,000 and placed on probation until Dec. 31.
