Setback For Carl Edwards

By  | 

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - NASCAR has docked Carl Edwards 25 points because his race-winning car failed inspection after Sunday's
Nextel Cup race at Dover International Raceway.
The penalty drops Edwards from third in the Chase for the
championship standings to sixth. He's now 28 points behind series
leader Jeff Gordon.
Team owner Jack Roush, who celebrated his 100th win with
Edwards' victory, also was docked 25 owner points and crew chief
Bob Osborne was fined $25,000.
Edwards' Number-99 Ford was deemed to be too low following
post-race inspection. Although NASCAR determined the height
infraction was not intentional, the team still was penalized in
accordance with NASCAR's strict inspection policy.
