Charlotte, NC--NASCAR will wait another day before issuing penalties against Joe Gibbs Racing's Nationwide Series teams, who were caught trying to cheat during a postrace test last weekend.
The teams of Gibbs' No. 18 and No. 20 Toyotas deliberately
attempted to mask the true horsepower in their engines after
Saturday's race at Michigan International Speedway. Inspectors found magnets under the gas pedals of both cars when they were sent to the chassis dyno for examination. NASCAR traditionally hands out penalties from the previous week's races on Tuesday, but NASCAR spokesman Kerry Tharp said the decision was put off until Wednesday.
