Chase Elliott, No. 9 team receive second severe penalty of season

Chase Elliott, No. 9 team receive second severe penalty of season”

Elliott's crew chief, Alan Gustafson, has been suspended for the next two series points races and fined $50,000.

Chase Elliot has been assessed NASCAR's most severe penalty once again after it was found he had a rear-window issue upon inspection after the O'Reilly Auto Parts 500 at Texas Motor Speedway Sunday.

It's the second penalty for Elliott's team this year.

Hendrick Motorsports will not appeal the penalty.

In addition, three crew members - Mason M. Mitchell, Charles E. Moles and Jeremy L. Murphy - were all indefinitely suspended by NASCAR for violation of its substance abuse policy. NASCAR deducted 25 points when a nonconforming rear suspension was found on Elliott's No. 9 vehicle following the race at ISM Raceway last month.

The #9 team was also given a 20-point deduction in the driver's and owner's championships, reducing Elliott's point total from 148 to 128.

The 20-point penalty drops Elliott from 15th to 18th in the NASCAR Cup standings and 17 points out of the current playoff cutoff. Francis, a longtime crew chief for former Hendrick driver Kasey Kahne, worked with Elliott during his part-time Cup schedule in 2015.

Elliott finished third in Phoenix in March and 11th at Texas Motor Speedway Sunday. However, Car Chief Josh Kirk did receive a two-race suspension.
