SONOMA, Calif. (AP) -- The cars driven by Jeff Gordon and Jimmie
Johnson failed initial inspection and will not be allowed to
practice or qualify today for Sunday's NASCAR Nextel Cup race at
Infineon Raceway.
NASCAR spokesman Ramsey Poston says both the Number-24 and
Number-48 Chevrolets of Hendrick Motorsports had modifications to
the front fenders "found to be outside NASCAR tolerances."
No further penalties or suspensions were announced, and Poston
says the teams will be allowed to repair their cars and try to get
them through inspection. Since they will not be allowed to qualify,
both cars will have to start from the rear of the 43-car field if
they pass inspection.
