MOORESVILLE, NC -- Dale Earnhardt, Inc. is going to appeal the points and monetary fine placed against the No. 15 NAPA Parts Chevrolet from last week's race at New Hampshire International Speedway.

Waltrip, driver of the No. 15 NAPA Chevrolet, was fined 25 driver points and $10,000 for allegedly using an "inappropriate gesture during a televised broadcast."

Teresa Earnhardt, CEO and President of Dale Earnhardt, Inc, was also fined 25 owner points.

"In looking at the tape, we don't see anywhere during the entire incident where Michael did what he is accused of doing," said Richie Gilmore, Vice President of Motorsports for DEI.
