NASCAR has issued penalties to Gordon and the No. 7 team that competes in the Sprint Cup Series as a result of rules violations committed at Lowe’s Motor Speedway earlier this week, NASCAR.com reports.
ROTOWIRE FANTASY ANALYSIS
Gordon's rear axle housing was confiscated by NASCAR and found to be illegal. He has been penalized 50 owner/driver championship points and Gordon's crew chief Kirk Almquist has been fined $50,000 for the infraction. This incident dulls what was otherwise a great run for the No. 7 team at Charlotte.
