Chad Walter Fined For Rule Violation At New Hampshire

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (July 2, 2008) -- NASCAR announced today that Chad Walter, crew chief for the No. 5 Chevrolet driven by Landon Cassill, has been fined due to a rule violation during the NASCAR Nationwide Series race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway on June 28.

Walter was fined $10,000 and remains on NASCAR probation until Dec. 31 due to violating Section 12-4-A (actions detrimental to stock car racing: use of improper language by the crew chief during a televised interview of the race) of the 2008 NASCAR Nationwide Series rule book. Walter originally was placed on probation in February, because of rule violations at the season-opening event, at Daytona International Speedway.

Additionally, Rick Hendrick, owner of the No. 5, was penalized with the loss of 25 NASCAR Nationwide Series car owner points while Cassill was docked 25 NASCAR Nationwide Series driver points.
