A follow-up inspection Tuesday discovered the vehicle of Joey Logano had an illegal suspension at Sunday's Richmond International Raceway.

Team Penske's No. 22 driven by Joey Logano was found to have a parts issue once the winning auto was torn down for R & D Inspection. That is why Penske has been hit with two major penalties this season, Joey Logano said Friday at Talladega Superspeedway. Wolfe already sat out one race, at California, but Team Penske later appealed.

NASCAR determined that Logano's truck trailing arm spacer and the pinion angle shim were not flush, which theoretically would enhance Logano's ability to drive through the corner. But Logano gets to keep his victory, just not the automatic playoff berth it originally guaranteed.

Brad Keselowski, Logano's teammate, was penalized after his No. 2 auto failed postrace inspection following a fifth-place finish March 19 race at Phoenix International Raceway.

Also, the 25-point penalty dropped Logano from fourth to fifth in the standings.

NASCAR has levied heavy penalties against Team Penske's No. 22 team after Joey Logano's winning auto from Richmond International Raceway was found with a rear suspension violation at the R&D Center.

It's the first time NASCAR has "encumbered" a race win since the encumber term was introduced into NASCAR lexicon in 2016. The violation was discovered in the No. 22's rear suspension during teardown in Concord, N.C., according to NASCAR, citing "Section 20.14.2". "I think we push as hard as we can because we're looking for hundredths of a second - every race team is - the fact of the matter is we're winning right now and when your vehicle wins, it gets put through tech a lot". The No. 22 team remains focused on competing for wins as we work towards the NASCAR Playoffs and a Championship. "Like I said, it wasn't a big deal, but it is black and white and for that reason we'll have to pay a penalty for that".

-Denny Hamlin's auto, the No. 11 Joe Gibbs Racing entry, was missing a lug nut during post-race inspection at Richmond. Crew chief Todd Gordon was suspended two races.

-Three teams in the NASCAR Xfinity Series also drew penalties for lug-nut infractions. The most severe was issued to the Richard Childress Racing No. 21 Chevrolet driven by rookie Daniel Hemric.
