Gordon, Johnson Penalized; Crew Chiefs Suspended 6 Races

SONOMA, Calif. (AP) _ Jeff Gordon and Jimmie Johnson were docked 100 points each today and their crew chiefs were both fined $100,000 and suspended for six races for violations at Sonoma's Infineon Raceway.

The two Hendrick Motorsports cars failed an initial inspection Friday when NASCAR officials found unapproved modifications to the fenders on their Chevrolets.

NASCAR refused to let either driver on the track the entire day, and neither was allowed to qualify.

The fenders were fixed and the cars passed inspection Saturday and were allowed to race Sunday. Gordon, the four-time series champion, finished seventh while defending Nextel Cup champion Johnson was 17th.
