DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (May 3, 2006) -- NASCAR announced today a total of 11 penalties that have been issued among five NASCAR Busch Series teams as a result of rule violations at Talladega Superspeedway.

The violation was discovered during pre-qualifying inspection on April 28.

The crew chiefs for the No. 33 Chevrolet driven by Tony Stewart and the No. 77 Chevrolet driven by Burney Lamar were both fined and placed on probation for violating Sections 12-4-A and 12-4-Q (car, car parts, components and/or equipment used that do not conform to NASCAR rules: Section 20A-3.1.2: the forward facing flange of the rear spoiler did not maintain the specified thickness).

Walt Rogers, crew chief of the No. 33 and Gene Nead, crew chief of the No. 77, each received $10,000 fines and were placed on probation until December 31, 2006. The violations were found during pre-qualifying inspection on April 28.

Additionally, Stewart and Lamar will each lose 25 NASCAR Busch Series driver points and team owner DeLana Harvick will forfeit a total of 50 NASCAR Busch Series owner points, 25 points for each driver.

Harvick was penalized 25 driver points and Richard Childress lost 25 owner points due to the infractions.
