Bowyer Back to Last For Violation

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) _ Clint Bowyer’s race-winning car from New

Hampshire has failed inspection and NASCAR is penalizing the

championship contender 150 points.

Crew chief Shane Wilson was fined $150,000 and suspended for six

weeks Wednesday. Team owner Richard Childress has also been docked

50 owner points.

Bowyer won Sunday’s opening race in the Chase for the Sprint Cup

championship to vault from 12th to second in the standings. The

penalty drops him back to last place.
