Crew Chief of No. 99 NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series team fined; driver and owner also receive point penalties

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (July 15, 2003) -- NASCAR officials announced today that Doug Richert, crew chief of the No. 99 NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series team, has been fined $25,000 due to a rule infraction discovered last week at Kentucky Speedway, following the Built Ford Tough 225.

In addition, NASCAR has penalized the team's driver, Carl Edwards, 100 NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series championship driver points and team owner, Jack Roush, 100 NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series championship owner points.

During the event's post-race inspection process, the engine of the No. 99 Ford was found to have unapproved cylinder heads, a violation of Section 12-4-Q of the 2003 NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series rulebook (parts and/or equipment used that do not conform to NASCAR rules) and Section 12-4-A (actions detrimental to stock car racing).
