NASCAR officials announce penalty.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (May 28, 2002) - NASCAR Officials fined NASCAR Busch Series crew chief, Tony Lambert $22,500 for a rule violation found during post-race inspection following Saturday's CarQuest Auto Parts 300 at Lowe's Motor Speedway in Concord, N.C.

Lambert, crew chief for the No. 54 Chevrolet, was penalized under Section 12-4-T in the 2002 NASCAR Busch Series rule book,"Any car that is found to be under the specified height requirement after the completion... of the race."

The minimum height requirement is 50-1/2 inches - the No. 54 car was approximately 1/4 of an inch too low.
