Brad Keselowski finished third at his home track in Sunday’s Pure Michigan 400, but the result comes with a fine after NASCAR assessed Keselowski’s No. 2 team with a P2 level penalty.
Keselowski was docked 10 points and crew chief Paul Wolfe was fined $15,000 after the 2012 Sprint Cup Series champion’s car failed post-race laser inspection at Michigan International Speedway.
Team Penske owner Roger Penske was also docked 10 points in the owner’s standings as a result of the penalty. However, neither Penske nor Keselowski will lose their bonus points and automatic berth for the upcoming first round of the Chase.
Keselowski’s team was additionally assessed a written warning for failing the LIS machine twice in pre-race.
Regan Smith and Camping World Truck Series driver Spencer Gallagher were also issued penalties after the weekend at Michigan.
Smith’s No. 7 Tommy Baldin Racing team will lose pit selection after failing laser inspection twice before the race.
Gallagher was fined $5,000 for approaching the racing surface after an incident with Christopher Bell in Saturday’s Careers for Veterans 200.
