NASCAR Busch Series Crew Chief Sawyer Fined

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (March 11, 2005) -- NASCAR has announced that Elton Sawyer, crew chief for the No. 6 Dodge driven by Paul Wolfe in the NASCAR Busch Series, has been fined $2,500 for a rule violation that occurred last week at the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez road course in Mexico City. During opening day inspection on March 3, the No. 6 was found to have an unapproved first gear transmission ratio, a violation of Section 12-4-CC of the NASCAR Busch Series rule book. That also violated Section 12-4-A (actions detrimental to stock car racing).

In addition, Danny Gill, crew chief for the No. 73 Chevrolet driven by Eric Jones, has been fined $500 because of an unapproved intake manifold found during the opening day inspection. The No. 73 was in violation of 12-4-A and 12-4-Q (car, car parts, components, and/or equipment used that do not conform to NASCAR rules).
