CHARLOTTE, N.C. — NASCAR docked Kyle Busch six points and fined his crew chief $25,000 Monday because Busch’s car failed post-race inspection at Pocono Raceway. The No. 18 Toyota was found to be too low during NASCAR’s inspection Sunday. NASCAR responded Monday by docking Busch six driver points and car owner Joe Gibbs six owner points. Crew chief Dave Rogers received the fine. Busch finished third in the race. Despite the penalty, he remains fifth in the standings, but he now trails leader Carl Edwards by 31 points. Joe Gibbs Racing said in a statement it would not appeal the penalty. Read the expanded version of this report in the print edition of the Kingsport Times-News or its enhanced electronic edition.
