DAYTONA, Fla. (Feb. 28, 2006) -- NASCAR announced today that four penalties have been issued to two NASCAR Busch Series teams, as a result of rules violations this past weekend at California Speedway.

Three penalties were assessed to the No. 17 Ford team for violations of Sections 12-4-A (actions detrimental to stock car racing), 12-4-Q (car, car parts, components and/or equipment that do not conform to NASCAR rules), and 20A-12.1B (2) (unapproved rear jacking bolts, incorrect thread count) of the 2006 NASCAR Busch Series Rule Book. Crew chief Chad Norris was fined $10,000; driver Matt Kenseth was penalized with the loss of 25 driver championship points; and car owner Jack Roush was penalized 25 owner championship points. These rules violations were discovered during opening day inspection.

Dave Fuge Jr., crew chief for the No. 34 Chevrolet driven by Todd Bodine, has been fined $2,500 for violating Sections 12-4-A, 12-4-Q, and 12-4-CC (unapproved rear end gear ratio). These violations were also discovered during opening day inspection.
