Cindric’s crew chief ejected for body modifications

The No. 22 Team Penske Xfinity Series team was issued an L1-level penalty Thursday at Kentucky Speedway for an illegal body modification to its car, and crew chief Brian Wilson was escorted from the garage as a result.

NASCAR officials discovered the modification during inspection and issued the penalty before Xfinity Series cars took the track at the 1.5-mile speedway.

The L1 penalty comes with a loss of 10 points for driver Austin Cindric and team owner Roger Penske, along with a one-race suspension to Wilson — which he will serve at this race. The team also was fined $10,000.

It was confirmed that the No. 22 team made the appropriate fixes to the Ford and did not need to go to a backup car.
