Earnhardt Docked 100 Points, Crew Chief Fined, Suspended

Updated:
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Dale Earnhardt Jr. was docked 100 points Tuesday, and his crew chief was fined $100,000 and suspended for six races for an illegal part at Darlington Raceway.

Dale Earnhardt Inc. will appeal, team president Max Siegel said.

"We are not disputing the ruling," Siegel said. "But we are appealing the severity of the penalty because the penalty itself is not spelled out in the rule book."

Tony Eury Jr.'s suspension is for points races only, meaning he'll be allowed to work with Earnhardt in Saturday night's All-Star race.

NASCAR inspectors said Earnhardt's rear wing was improperly mounted when it was checked Saturday at Darlington. The brackets used to mount the piece were confiscated.
