DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (September 23, 2004) -- NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series crew chief Jimmy Fennig was fined $1,000 for a fuel cell spacer infraction that occurred at last weekend's NASCAR NEXTEL Cup event at New Hampshire International Speedway and crew chief Robbie Reiser received the identical fine for the same infraction at the Sept. 11 event held at Richmond International Raceway, NASCAR officials announced today.

Fennig, crew chief for the No. 97 Ford of driver Kurt Busch, and Reiser, crew chief for the No. 17 Ford of driver Matt Kenseth, each were in violation of Section 12-4-A (Actions detrimental to stock car racing) and 12-4-Q (Any determination by NASCAR Officials that the car, car parts, components and/or equipment used in the Event do not conform to NASCAR rules) of the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series Rule Book (Actions detrimental to stock car racing) for an unapproved fuel cell spacer.

The infractions were discovered by NASCAR officials during opening-day inspection at both events.
