NASCAR takes splitters from Team Penske cars

Reid Spencer - NASCAR Wire Service Monday, Aug 17 1175
Before Sunday’s race NASCAR required the Team Penske teams of Joey Logano and Brad Keselowski to change the front splitters on their two Fords, because those parts were dangerously close to the tolerances allowed in pre-race inspection.

With the thickness of the splitters at issue, NASCAR asked the teams to err on the side of caution and replace them. NASCAR took the splitters removed from the No. 2 (Keselowski) and No. 22 (Logano) cars to its research-and-development center in Concord, N.C., for further evaluation.

NASCAR will determine at its competition meeting early in the week whether further action is warranted.
