Joey Logano's Richmond win won't count toward playoffs

Joey Logano, Penske penalized following victory at Richmond

Team Penske can appeal the penalties, but it isn't yet known if it intends to do so.

Other penalties from Richmond include Denny Hamlin's crew chief, Mike Wheeler, being fined $10,000 for one lug nut being improperly secured. It also revitalizes the debate about race wins and cars that fail inspection.

NASCAR began policing the maneuver and penalizing practice times of teams for attempting to swerve immediately after a race.

SHOOTING stars created by the trail of Halley's Comet will be visible in the night sky over Essex tonight. An NBC4 viewer sent us dashcam video from the eastbound 10 Freeway near Mid-City/downtown Los Angeles.

The violation, section 20.14.2 of the NASCAR Rule Book, was discovered at the NASCAR R&D Center citing: The Truck trailing arm spacer/pinion angle shim mating surfaces must be planar and must be in complete contact with corresponding mating surfaces at all points and at all times. Kyle Busch's Xfinity Series team was tagged with an encumbered finish in his race win at Atlanta earlier this season.

Logano, who was already popped for swerving at Bristol Motor Speedway two races ago, and served a 30-minute practice hold at Richmond was adamant that the penalty had nothing to do with swerving to reset the rear suspension of the vehicle. He said the drivers were swerving their cars after the race to try to bring the parts back into compliance before they entered the inspection station.

So while the issue is more or less closed, Logano will keep the win, technically, but he will have to win again to receive an automatic playoff berth. Team Penske has been docked 25 owner and driver points while crew chief Todd Gordon has been suspended for two races. We've lost a lot of regular points.

Federal investigators also said two witnesses told them that they could see Sterling's right hand and it wasn't in his pocket. As of nightfall on Wednesday, the streets of Baton Rouge were quiet, with a few protesters gathering under intermittent rain.

"Honestly, I don't believe that we wear a black hat or anything like that", Logano said about the team. "I think we understand the direction that we need to go, and we'll make sure we're not putting ourselves in that situation anymore". "We push as hard as we can because we're looking for hundredths of a second".

"We're gonna have to push as hard as we can to be successful, and sometimes you go over that line", Logano said. Team Penske announced it will not appeal the penalty and will have race engineer Miles Stanley serve as Logano's crew chief Sunday at Talladega. "When you're a little bit over, we're sitting talking about what we are today".

University of Texas stabbings suspect had mental health issues
The system's first emergency texts were not sent until nearly 30 minutes after the attack, and the campus sirens were not sounded. Authorities do not believe there is an ongoing threat to the campus community but have increased patrols as a precaution.
