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.
