DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (July 20, 2005) -- NASCAR announced today that four penalties have been issued to NASCAR Busch Series competitors as a result of rules infractions last weekend at New Hampshire.

Three penalties were issued to the No. 90 Ford team because of an unapproved shock absorber, a violation of Section 12-4-A (Actions detrimental to stock car racing), and Section 12-4-Q (parts and/or equipment used in the Event do not conform to NASCAR rules) of the NASCAR Busch Series rule book. This infraction was discovered during post-race inspection.

Elliott Sadler, driver of the No. 90, was penalized with the loss of 25 NASCAR Busch Series driver championship points. Car owner Robert Yates was penalized with the loss of 25 NASCAR Busch Series owner championship points. Crew chief Todd Parrott was fined $10,000 and placed on probation until Sept. 21.

Chris Rice, crew chief of the No. 59 Ford driven by Stacy Compton, was fined $5,000 for an unapproved throttle shaft and throttle plates that were too thin, a violation of Section 12-4-A (Actions detrimental to stock car racing), and Section 12-4-Q (parts and/or equipment used in the Event do not conform to NASCAR rules) of the NASCAR Busch Series rule book.
