Broken spring could be costly for Kenseth's Busch team
SCENEDAILY - 2:11PM ET SUNDAY NOVEMBER 11, 2007 - BY BOB POCKRASS - ASSOCIATE EDITOR


 
JASON SMITH / GETTY IMAGESAVONDALE, Ariz. - A broken left front spring caused the No. 17 Roush Racing Ford driven by Matt Kenseth to be too high in the right rear during postrace inspection following the Arizona.Travel 200 Busch Series race Saturday at Phoenix International Raceway.

Kenseth finished second in the race. His team faces possible points and monetary penalties from being outside the NASCAR specifications. NASCAR likely will announce any penalties Tuesday.

 
"It had a broken spring, a broken coil," team owner Jack Roush said Sunday morning. "It's not clear at all what, if any, punitive action NASCAR will take. You're going to break parts sometime.

"That is a part that we ran in that car at this race track in the winter. We haven't broken a Draco spring all year. Parts break. We broke a part."

UPDATE: NASCAR announced that Drew Blickensderfer, crew chief for the #17 Ford driven by Matt Kenseth in the Busch Series, was fined $10,000 for violating Sections 12-4-A (actions detrimental to stock car racing), 12-4-Q (car, car parts, components and/or equipment used that do not conform to NASCAR rules) and 20A12.8.1D (after competition, the right rear quarter panel height exceeded the maximum of 36 inches) of the 2007 Busch Series Rule Book. Additionally, Kenseth was penalized with the loss of 25 championship driver points and team owner Jack Roush was penalized with the loss of 25 championship owner points due to the same violations. The infractions were discovered during post-race inspection on Nov. 10 at Phoenix.(NASCAR PR)(11-13-2007)


I bet if it was Hendrick, they wouldn't have been penalized for a broken part.
